Written by Stephen Sykes, Public Information Officer for the Council Bluffs Interstate Improvement Program
A recent article in the Daily Nonpareil highlighted a discussion between a Council Bluffs resident and program representatives related to noise walls that will be installed in the reconstructed interstate corridor. During a public open house earlier this year, I had the chance to meet Mr. and Mrs. Lloyd and Debbie Marsh who inquired about the potential construction of a noise wall to the south of their neighborhood, Pavich Addition along I-80/I-29. After some initial research on the topic I traded emails and had a few phone conversations with Mr. Marsh. These conversations led to a meeting in mid-May to discuss the initial noise study and analysis that was used to determine the locations of future noise walls. A noise wall is not planned in the location near the Marsh’s neighborhood.
