Metrorail Acoustical Barrier Replacement Program

The Metrorail Acoustical Barrier Replacement Program consists of the installation of acoustical barriers with associated hardware along the Metrorail system where type “B” concrete barriers have been removed. The program spans along the Metrorail alignment except for the Airport and Palmetto extensions as well as a half-mile stretch between the Brickell and Vizcaya Metrorail stations.

The new barriers are intended to abate sound/noise produced by passing trains, ultimately limiting its propagation to adjacent properties. The newly designed acoustical barriers being installed have a modern look, are lightweight, and known for their strength and ease of installation and maintenance. These sleek and strong acoustical barriers have been tested to resist the most extreme weather conditions.

All work is being performed on an electrified, elevated guideway system at night and some weekends. The program is intended to replace only the type “B” acoustical barriers previously removed from the Metrorail guideway.
