Representatives from The Ray are proposing a $1 million beautification project at Exit 13— the Whitesville Road exit, on I-85.

Exit 13 is where Great Wolf Lodge will be located and is expected to draw 500,000 visitors annually.

The Ray is an 18-mile stretch of I-85 from Exit 2 to Exit 18. It's named after the late Interface founder Ray C. Anderson, a globally-recognized environmental leader.

The Exit 13 proposal includes a water feature with six jets and colored lights, along with boulders, ornamental grass, along with existing vegetation including pine trees and oaks.

"We want to create a look that will tie into the Great Wolf aesthetic for tourists coming into LaGrange from I-85," said The Ray Executive Director Allie Kelly.
