SoftSound Chosen for Major Transportation Infrastructure Project
SoftSound, Smith-Midland’s absorptive sound wall product is being applied to precast sound panels manufactured as part of the new Washington, DC to Dulles International Airport Metro Rail commuter system expansion. During Phase 1 of this multi-year Virginia DOT project, 2191 panels (277,000 sq. ft.) of sound wall are being installed along a section of the Dulles Commuter Road from Route 123 to Interstate 66 in Fairfax County. The superior absorptive qualities of SoftSound will play an integral part in protecting the adjacent residential neighborhoods from the noise of both the highway traffic and the newly constructed Metro Rail line that will run down the center median. SMC will be delivering up to 4,000 sq. ft. per day, completing Phase 1 installation in early 2015.
