Perry Hall’s elected officials announced on Wednesday that two new noise barriers would be constructed along portions of Interstate-95 between the East Joppa Road and New Forge Road overpasses.
Along northbound I-95, a new noise wall will extend south from the New Forge Road overpass for approximately 3,470 feet. Along southbound I-95, a new noise wall will extend south from the New Forge Road overpass for approximately 5,360 feet. The two new noise walls will be constructed near the right-of-way line.
“Residents have asked for years for these barriers,” said Councilman David Marks.
Construction of the two new noise walls will be completed via access from I-95 and New Forge Road with off-peak traffic and shoulder closures. The new noise walls will include a stone pattern finish, and they will vary in height from approximately 12 feet to 31 feet.
“These barriers should offer peace and quiet for Perry Hall residents,” said Senator J.B. Jennings.
“I would like to thank the Maryland Transportation Authority for its work on this project,” added Delegate Lauren Arikan.
“We will continue to work toward better transportation for our constituents,” concluded Delegate Kathy Szeliga.
The southbound noise wall is anticipated to begin construction in April of 2019 and be completed in April of 2020. The northbound noise wall is anticipated to begin construction in May of 2019 and be completed in May of 2020.
