August 20, 2021 – As part of the I-95/BSR project, a Noise Study was completed. The Noise Study analyzed several “Noise Sensitive Areas” and found that a noise barrier could be installed on I-95 southbound along James Street, from Fraley Street to Wakeling Street.
Those residents who would be directly benefitted by the barrier were contacted and given the opportunity to comment on whether they wanted a noise barrier constructed. The residents voted on the appearance of the neighborhood-facing side of the barrier. The residents voted yes for the barrier and selected a transparent barrier option. The proposed barrier will be 8-10 feet high.
See below for a rendering of the transparent barrier option.
