DOT hires firm to count I-277 ‘noise walls’ ballots

The N.C. Department of Transportation has hired a private contractor to review ballots on the issue of whether to install noise walls along Interstate 277 in Charlotte’s uptown.

The noise walls are proposed for a section of the freeway near the Fourth Ward neighborhood. Construction would be linked to the addition of High Occupancy Toll lanes on I-77 from the Brookshire Freeway to N.C. 150 in Iredell County.

The DOT said it has hired Atkins to insure than all qualified ballots are counted. The DOT said it used property and tax records to contact anyone who would be impacted by the walls, along the Brookshire Freeway.
