Crow Canyon sound wall noise mitigation project begins

Original post made on Jan 11, 2013

I think I'd rather have the trees and a little traffic noise than a big wall.

Agreed, especially given how many hundreds of trees they want to remove.

They don't really work. Something has to absorb the sound, the walls merely cause the sound to ricochet, and even can make it worse. When they walled the 680 corridor one friend living a couple blocks away (in San Ramon) stated that it was even noisier after they were installed.

More stupidity. It might be a "sound" wall, meaning it is constructed soundly, but it could be better described as a rebound wall.
Idiot planners need to look for sound absorption walls! and not pretend that concrete, brick and otherwise do anything to absorb sound.

How can our society be so DUMB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sound walls help those who need it most: those living nearest the traffic. If you were living with the noise, you would have a different opinion than those who just drive by and miss the trees. Get real.
