The Trusted Noise Barrier Wall for Virginia I-66 Project
Durisol® awarded the supply the noise barrier walls for the I-66 outside the Beltway highway transformation, with installation set to begin June 2019.
Prince William County, VA – The transformation of the Virginia I-66 will begin this coming June and will require the supply of Durisol absorptive wall panels for a 523,000 square foot noise barrier wall along the highway.
To mitigate the highway traffic noise impact on adjacent residential communities, noise walls will be constructed or replaced at select locations on I-66 East and West between the Dulles Connector Road and Fairfax Drive/Glebe Road (Exit 71).
Multiple factors determine whether noise walls are feasible and reasonable and where they will be installed, including noise analyses, design plans, and traffic studies. As an approved product, the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) has specified Durisol absorptive noise barriers for years because of both their cost-effectiveness and the due to the manufacturing turnaround.
Set to be completed by late 2022, the 11,500-panel noise wall will sit atop a post and pile retaining wall and feature a traditional drystack pattern on the highway- and a natural stone pattern on the residential side.
