Noise Barrier Engagement
Per federal requirements, a noise barrier analysis is being completed and the project team anticipates noise barriers to meet thresholds in a few locations (view draft locations here). A virtual office hour was held on August 17 to discuss and answer questions on the barrier process and potential locations. If you were unable to attend, you can review the presentation in both English and Spanish. It is anticipated that the noise barrier analysis will be finalized, and a formal public meeting will be held in October 2021.
Agency & Property Owner Coordination Meetings
Meetings and ongoing communication with agencies and property owners directly impacted by the project will lead the design process, discussing potential right-of-way impacts and coordination needs.
