comments:

The N.C. Department of Transportation will host media availability on Friday, Feb. 26, for a briefing on proposed noise walls along the Urban Loop.

Comments will be made starting promptly at 12:30 p.m. Media outlets should arrive no later than 1:15 p.m. Please note that this will be the only time on-camera interviews will be available. A statement will be issued on Monday evening before the public meeting addressing noise walls but not during or after the public meeting.

NCDOT Traffic Noise & Air Quality Group Leader Gregory A. Smith and NCDOT Division Engineer Mike Mills will be available for questions.

Any time there is a change in surroundings, noise changes. A new or expanded road will change the noise level due to increased traffic. NCDOT seeks to reduce predicted noise increases for nearby residents.

Basic information on traffic noise and the Department's efforts to reduce it as much as possible found here.

For more media questions contact Division 7 & 9 Communications Officer Miracle King at (336) 487-0157 or miracleking@ncdot.gov and follow us on Twitter for all things Triad NCDOT.
