Location (if any):I-66 / Route 7 backing to Colonel Lindsay Ct.
Details:As a new Falls Church Resident with a property backing to I-66, do I have any options regarding noise? Road noise is tolerable, noise from the metro subway is not. I realize I-66 is a federal road, and VDOT maintains it - currently a sound wall exists on the south side but not the north side of I-66, where my property is located. I haven't received any good info from VDOT other than sound walls are only considered during construction projects, so don't ask otherwise. Also, if I was to look into a fence with noise-suppressing features - how long is the approval process for a fence that is 10-12 feet high?

Details:Since your property is located in Falls Church, Fairfax County, and not in the City of Falls Church, you'll need to contact the county's zoning office.
