Those in this project area that will have a noise reduction of at least five decibels or more will be able to vote for or against the noise wall that provides the noise reduction. Learn more about how your vote counts and how noise walls will impact your area by watching this video. Tallies of the votes for each wall are coming in and updated each Friday.
About this project
MnDOT is designing a road project that includes adding a lane, in each direction, to I-35W between Hwy 36 in Roseville and Lexington Ave. (Co Rd 17) in Blaine. MnDOT is also analyzing the need and locations for building noise walls along the interstate.
MnDOT's goal is to design a project that:
Reduces congestion and improves safety on the highway
Increases the number of people that are moved along the highway during peak hours
Provides reliable travel times for commuters during peak hours
Optimizes and reuses existing roads and bridges (without needing to acquire homes and properties)
