What to Expect

  • Construction activities will involve the use of heavy equipment and small tools, in addition to the placement of large panels, and will have the potential to create noise.
  • Noise monitors will be used onsite while construction activities are in progress. RailWorks will implement additional noise mitigation measures including the use of sound blankets (large, flexible panels) to reduce the noise level.
