93 More Louisville Homes Slated for Soundproofing

Thursday, February 4th, 2010

The Quieter Home program in Louisville is moving forward. Phase 2 of the program was approved last week, granting the Louisville Regional Airport Authority the permission it needed to soundproof another 93 homes.

Each home will be given sound-insulating treatments to help protect it (and its inhabitants) from the noise caused by the aircraft entering and leaving the airport. Homeowners will need to apply for the program by filling out an application package that will be mailed to their homes. Those who are eligibile will receive more than $50,000 in soundproofing, including upgrades to their windows, insulation, and ventilation systems!
