MDOT SHA will determine if the community is impacted by highway traffic noise and if the construction of a sound barrier is reasonable and feasible. Only barriers that are determined to be both reasonable and feasible will be approved.
To determine your eligibility, start by reviewing MDOT SHA sound barrier guidelines and policy
Visit the Request for Service page
here. In the Topic pull-down menu, select “Sound Barriers.”
Construction of a sound barrier may be both feasible and reasonable and the community deemed eligible to have a sound barrier constructed. However, funds may not be readily available for these barriers. In that case, the project application will go on an eligibility wait list and the barrier will be constructed once funds become available.
