What will you do for sound and light mitigation on the corridor?

The Town’s design criteria will be used for the widening project. The lighting for the roadway will be based on what is needed for a four-lane arterial. The light fixtures are designed to minimize the unwanted scattering of light but instead, focus the light where it is needed on the roadway. There are no current plans identified to specifically address noise levels, as there are currently more project needs identified than there are projected funds to implement them. Due to the significant costs associated with sound mitigation, measures like these would further increase the gap between wants and needs versus projected funds to complete the project. As such, other projects would need to be delayed should sound mitigation measures be included.
