Project Objectives

The project objectives for the new noise reduction system were informed by local community plans and include:

  • continuing to buffer communities from traffic noise on Yellowhead Trail at noise thresholds below City policy

  • supporting an active mode east-west corridor

  • improved lighting 

  • additional green space

  • increasing safety

  • providing a cost-effective solution

Through concept planning, which began in March 2020, the project team investigated a number of noise reduction systems and with the objectives in mind, designed a new and modern noise reduction system.
