A noise analysis was conducted to assess the noise impacts associated with the MDOT Rebuilding Michigan project in Berrien County. The project involves variety of improvements, including replacing or improving 11 bridges, improving several interchanges, a new ramp at the I-94/M-63 (Niles Road) interchange, and a new eastbound I-94 auxiliary lane between Pipestone Road and Napier Avenue.

The noise analysis analyzed the entire project area for noise impacts and potential noise mitigation. The draft technical report and information on MDOT’s noise abatement program are both available on MDOT's website.
