Noise panels on Ship Canal Bridge

June 6th, 2010 · No Comments

If you live near the Ship Canal Bridge, here’s some news that might help you sleep better at night. Starting this Monday (6/7), crews will begin the process of putting up noise absorbing ceiling panels on the south end of the bridge above the express lanes. The panels are designed to absorb and block some of the reflected traffic noise that bounces off the ceiling of the express lanes and into the surrounding neighborhoods in Wallingford, the U-District, and Eastlake.

The impact of the panels will be studied over 3 years to see if they can be used in other projects. Some lane closures on the express lanes will also take place during part of the installation. You can learn more on the WSDOT’s webpage.
