GIR: Noise Barriers

Prior to I-95 reconstruction between Frankford Avenue and Columbia Avenue, I-95 did not include noise barriers to dampen the sound of vehicles traveling on the highway. Near neighbors within a defined distance of the highway voted to construct noise barriers adjacent to homes, schools and parks, and the first barriers were constructed between Frankford and Columbia avenues. In 2015, property owners located to the north of Columbia Avenue voted to have transparent barriers installed during GR4 construction between Columbia Avenue and Ann Street. Property owners south of Frankford Avenue will have the opportunity to vote on design and materials for the noise barriers prior to construction in those areas (GR5, GR6).

  • Status: Noise walls are in place between Frankford and Columbia avenues. Residents between Columbia Avenue and Ann Street and from Race Street to Frankford Avenue have also decided to have noise barriers installed. These will be constructed during stages GR4, GR5 and GR6 (2019-2024). Check back for phasing and construction details.
  • Timeline: Anticipated completion 2027
  • Project Updates: Noise barrier meetings for GR5 and GR6 have not yet been established.
