Sound absorptive noise barriers to be installed for $1.4B Windsor highway project
January 23, 2014 by STAFF REPORT
Armtec Infrastructure Inc. has begun a contract with Parkway Infrastructure Constructors Group to design, engineer, supply and install more than six kilometers of sound absorptive noise barriers for the Rt. Hon. Herb Gray Parkway (formerly the Windsor-Essex Parkway) in southern Ontario.
The $1.4 billion highway redevelopment project – under construction since 2011 along an 11-kilometre stretch in the municipalities of Windsor, LaSalle and Tecumseh – will improve traffic flow along one of Canada’s premier trade corridors.
Armtec’s contribution to the project consists of about 25,000 m2 of precast durisol absorptive noise wall panels. In addition, two overpass structures will be fitted with transparent noise barriers, due to their lightweight and maintenance of scenic views.
The entire project is expected to be completed by the end of 2014. When finished, it will include a six-lane below-grade freeway as an extension of Highway 401, a four-lane at-grade service road network as an extension of Highway 3, and 300 acres of green space, including 20 kilometres of recreational trails, ecological restoration sites and thousands of new native trees and vegetation.
