BRIDGING THE FUTURE: Examining the Ohio River Bridges Project impact on New Albany

(Continued)

NEW ALBANY — DON’T FORGET I-265

While many have discussed publicly the impact the bridges project will have on New Albany’s downtown, Gahan said he’s also concerned with the I-265 corridor.

One of Gahan’s primary worries is that the additional traffic will result in sound pollution along I-265. Yes, the interstate has been there for years, but residents will be hearing more vehicles pass by as motorists come to New Albany to avoid paying tolls, Gahan said.

The city will approach the state about funding for sound barriers in hopes of receiving a grant.

“That doesn’t seem to be on anybody’s radar at the state level, but it’s certainly one of my concerns,” Gahan said.
