Noise and Vibration

Many people who live, work and use recreational facilities near the route of the Blue Line Extension have expressed interest in the potential noise and vibration impacts of the light rail line. The Metropolitan Council evaluated noise and vibration as part of the Environmental Impact Statement process, including measures to mitigate noise and vibration impacts where necessary. 

The Blue Line Extension Noise and Vibration Fact Sheets provide information on noise and vibration impacts, including how impacts are assessed and typical mitigation measures.
