I-39/90 Expansion Project

Illinois state line to Madison, Dane and Rock counties

Noise barriers

In early October 2013, all nine noise barriers were approved in the Central segment of I-39/90 expansion project, in Janesville. Read the noise barrier approval letter.

At the start of a state highway project, the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) determines noise impacts and evaluates possible mitigation measures, such as noise barriers.

After careful evaluation and a voting process, WisDOT installs noise barriers along portions of state highways to minimize noise impacts.

If a simple majority of the benefited receptors (properties with 8dB reduction) approve, noise barriers will be constructed in the proposed locations.
