Nighttime Noise

Traffic volumes are too high on U.S. 26 and I-84 for lane closures during the day so most of this construction work will take place at night. ODOT is in the process of obtaining a noise permit from the City of Portland for the nighttime work. ODOT is requesting up to 66 nights of work to be scheduled at various dates and locations from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 a.m., between August 31, 2016 and December 31, 2017.

Major construction equipment used to complete construction could include backhoes, drilling equipment, concrete mixers, pumps and saws, cranes, haul trucks, jackhammers, loaders, and other supporting equipment.

ODOT is proposing to mitigate noise impacts by restricting high noise activities such as hoe ram and jackhammer work to no later than 10 p.m. Other low noise activities such as excavation, concrete placement and boom truck removal and replacement of sign structures and signs could continue between 10 p.m. and 7 a.m. Prior to construction, notification will be distributed to residents in the project area. This notification will include a noise hotline number to help resolve any noise-related concerns or complaints 24-hours a day.
