8th St & Fremont Ave

Both the northwest and northeast corners of this intersection were retrofitted with curb cuts and basins to capture the abundant stormwater that flows along 8th St in rain storms.  The basins are planted with native bunch grasses, shrubs, and deciduous desert willow trees that provide summer shade but allow winter sun to hit the University of Arizona's (NW corner) in the winter.
