MGE was contracted by the City of Fairfield to design, advertise, bid, award and construct a noise barrier (sound wall) along the Martin Road frontage to the Casa Nova Mobile Home Park in the City of Fairfield, California to mitigate noise generated from I-80. The 12’ high sound wall replaced an existing fence per recommendations found in the “Environmental Noise Assessment” report prepared by Bollard & Brennan, Inc. (1/22/02). The sound wall was designed and constructed from a variety of funding sources including CDBG, Mobile Home park funds and City funds.
The design of the sound wall met the public safety criteria. The Soundwall is designed to minimize on-going maintenance costs, disturbance to public right-of-way, and provides an effective and aesthetically pleasing look to the surrounding area.

Civil and structural engineering design and landscape architecture services were utilized to produce complete bid-ready contract documents necessary to successfully advertise, bid and award the construction contract.
