I-5 - Exit 111 - Lacey Vicinity Noise Barriers - Complete December 2011


The original construction of I-5 did not consider noise impacts. There are locations on the I-5 corridor that have been ranked by priority on a statewide retrofit list.

Since 1976, WSDOT has been required to take noise levels into consideration during design of highway projects. Highways built prior to 1976 can qualify for noise reduction projects. 

Noise barriers of varying heights were built at 14th Avenue/Thompson Place and Queets Drive in Lacey.
