Public invited to I-35 noise wall open house in Burnsville

ROSEVILLE, Minn – Those interested in a proposed project to build two noise walls along I-35 just north of County Road 46/162nd Street in Burnsville are invited to an open house to learn more about the project and MnDOT’s noise wall program.

The event is open to the public and will be held 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday, May 17 at Nativity Episcopal Church, 15601 Maple Island Road in Burnsville.

Those attending will be able to view the project’s design and layout, simulated visual representations, take home information and have their questions answered directly from MnDOT noise experts, designers, engineers and other project staff involved with the project. Representatives from the city of Burnsville will also be on hand.

The walls, if approved by the city of Burnsville, would be constructed in 2015. Funding would be shared between MnDOT and the city of Burnsville. Approximately 90 percent of the projected cost would come from MnDOT’s noise wall program funds, with the remaining 10 percent coming from the City of Burnsville.
