SouthEast Connector Team Implements Noise Minimizing Precautions

Dear Stakeholder:

The RTC and Granite Construction are taking several precautions to minimize construction noise near neighborhoods. Sound monitoring and noise-reducing equipment are in place to ensure noise does not exceed 70dBA (comparable to a lawn mower from 100 feet away).

Additionally, beginning the week of July 25, the project team will be placing Conex boxes, or intermodal shipping containers, near Heron’s Landing to create a temporary sound wall during construction of the Mira Loma Bridge. The boxes will create a sound barrier between construction operations and neighboring residents by absorbing the noise. A permanent, 10-foot-high sound wall will be built along the edge of the roadway at Heron’s Landing once construction is completed.

Granite Construction has also installed Multi-Phase or White Noise Backup Alarms on equipment working in Rosewood Lakes Golf Course and Heron’s Landing areas to help prevent a noise nuisance.

Watch a video comparing the two alarm sounds.

For more information please call the project hotline at (775) 789-9832 or email Info@SouthEastConnector.com. For additional information and to sign-up to receive updates visit SouthEastConnector.com
