2018 Sound Fence Installation

A recent Traffic Noise Monitoring Study has indicated that sections of fence in Coopers Crossing and Woodside need to be upgraded to attenuate noise levels. To reduce sound in these neighbourhoods, new sound walls will be constructed within the 2018 construction season.

See attached map and addresses for Coopers Crossing.

See attached map and addresses for Woodside.

See attached letter to residents.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact City of Airdrie Engineering Services at engineering.services@airdrie.ca or 403.948.8835.

 

Traffic Noise Monitoring Studies

The 2016 Traffic Noise Monitoring Study is available to view and download. This study recorded continuous noise levels at eight residential locations in Airdrie in June of 2016 and was conducted in accordance with the City’s current Transportation Noise Policy. Results of the noise levels at the various locations as well as other technical information can be found in the report.

The creation of the report was a collaborative effort between the City, our consultant and the residents of Airdrie. The City appreciates the residents that provided a location for the consultant to stage their monitoring equipment.

 

Sound Attenuation Analysis for New Developments

Developers are responsible for providing a sound attenuation analysis for new developments in accordance with the current City of Airdrie Transportation Noise Policy. The analysis will be required as supporting documentation for the preliminary engineering drawing submission.

See the attached Noise Analysis Checklist

 

Sound Fence

During the design process a sound attenuation analysis is required for any residential development bordering arterial roadways or highways. Sound fencing is required in areas where the noise analysis demonstrates a sound fence must be installed and must follow the sound fence requirements.
