Soundwall Information
In April 2009, the Oregon Department of Transportation met with the Laurel Hill Valley neighbors to discuss and answer questions about a proposed sound wall. The purpose of the sound wall is to reduce the traffic noise levels from projected increases in traffic on I-5 over the next 20 years. 
Affected neighbors voted in support of the sound wall and responded to a survey about possible sound wall designs. More than 120 of your neighbors responded to the survey and overwhelmingly chose the sculpted concrete design, which would be seen intermittently along the wall.  A summary of the survey results is available at the link below, along with other information about the proposed sound wall. Also below are final designs for the LHV sound wall.
