I-4 to Get Sound Walls in Downtown Orlando

 
I-4 to Get Sound Walls in Downtown Orlando
Posted September 18th, 2013 @ 6:18pm

Residents who live in downtown Orlando are being notified that there will likely be 14-foot-high sound walls installed along Interstate 4. The proposed project is part of a $2 billion make-over to the busy highway that acts as the spine of Central Florida's transportation network.

Anyone who lives within the 200 foot shadow of the proposed walls will be receiving, if they haven't already, one of these letters letting them know of the project. The walls are designed to decrease the sound of the traffic coming from the interstate. The letters are also asking what color and design they might want to see from these sound walls.

Eben Self, a resident of College Park which is just north of downtown, says he's heard supportive feedback from his neighbors regarding the walls: "The feedback I've heard is that everyone is for them. The taller the better."
