 Acoustic freeway work for Woodside / $7.4 million to repave parts of noisy I-280
The California Department of Transportation, which had once insisted that such a proposal was out of the question, now has agreed to resurface at least portions of a 5.6-mile stretch of the freeway's aging concrete with alternative treatments -- including rubberized asphalt -- that are said to be quieter than conventional cement-grinding techniques.
The decision reflected a sharp turnaround by Caltrans from last February when highway engineers told the town that such work would not only cost millions of dollars more than was in their budget for the planned repaving, but that traffic noise mitigation was not the agency's responsibility.
A growing number of Woodside residents have complained that I-280 traffic noise has been on the rise in recent years because of higher freeway speeds and the pounding of big-wheeled sports utility vehicles on the deteriorating cement roadway.
