BAY CITY, Mich. (AP) - A stretch of U.S. 10 in Bay City is expected to be awash in yellow next spring when 40,000 daffodils begin to bloom.

The Bay City Times reports (https://bit.ly/1s3zofd) that volunteers are needed to help plant daffodil bulbs Tuesday and Wednesday on the freeway’s north and south sides.

Bay Area Chamber of Commerce President Mike Seward says the flowers are going to lead people into the city and that “the bright yellow is going to really pop.”

Dow Chemical Co. donated $20,000 to the project. Dow Chemical employees also will help plant the bulbs.

Bay Landscaping Inc. sold the bulbs at cost to the Bay Area Chamber of Commerce Community Beautification Committee.

Bay City is about 90 miles northwest of Detroit.
