Lynn Road Soundwall Phase I (MI 2215) – Final Noise Study
The City is planning to conduct final noise measurements to confirm the location of the proposed soundwall along Lynn Road. Based on the requirements of the Dos Vientos Specific Plan EIR approved in 1987, this final noise study is necessary to identify properties on Blackwood Street that are backing to Lynn Road where noise levels generated by traffic volumes at the project build-out stage exceed 65 dB. The full occupancy of the last large tract in Dos Vientos is now complete and the development is built-out.
Project Time Frame
The City’s acoustical sound consultant will be measuring noise levels along Lynn Road in Spring 2019. A draft report of findings is expected by Summer 2019. Once the location of the eligible soundwall has been reviewed and concurred by the residents, the City will hire a consultant to prepare plans, specifications, and estimate by 2020, with construction starting in late 2020 or early 2021.
The preliminary cost of Phase I including the noise study and preparation of plans is $200,000. The preliminary construction phase cost is $1,000,000. The project is funded by Dos Vientos Developer Fees.
The construction of the soundwall along Lynn Road will reduce the noise levels for the eligible properties on Blackwood Street that exceed 65 dB.
Project Map and Impacts
Temporary lane closures during non-rush hour periods are expected. We will be notifying residents of these impacts via changeable message signs, project identification boards, and through social media.
