Noise Walls

As part of the West Davis Highway project, noise walls are proposed in five locations: 

  • Wall 1 – Centerville Community Park – Approved for construction
  • Wall 2 – Centerville and Farmington along the east frontage road from 1650 North to 1550 South – Approved for construction
  • Wall 3 – Syracuse in the Still Water neighborhood from approx. 1000 West to 1600 West – Approved for construction
  • Wall 4 – Syracuse near Fremont Crest Avenue – Approved for construction
  • Wall 5 – Syracuse near Steed Drive – Approved for construction
 
These maps show the locations of the proposed noise walls:

During the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) process and subsequent environmental studies, noise impacts for the entire length of the West Davis Highway were measured and modeled, and noise walls were evaluated. Based on those evaluations, the five walls listed above are proposed for construction. Per UDOT’s noise policy, qualified residents and property owners near these walls, described as “benefited receptors,” are voting to approve or reject their construction. A “benefited receptor” is a resident or property owner who would receive a reduction of 5 decibels or more if a proposed noise wall were constructed.

This balloting process is currently underway and expected to be complete within the next few months. Results will be posted here once the process is complete.

If you live near one of the proposed noise walls and believe you should have received a ballot, please contact the project team at (877) 298-1991.

The Final EIS includes information for all noise barriers considered as part of this project. Below are links to updated studies for each of the walls being proposed for construction:
