Richardson in Arcadia is expecting word soon from the state department of transportation Cal trans division of highways on renewed requests for sound barriers Walls along foothill freeway. Jim head. Richardson s administrative Aid. Met with two Cal trans representatives May .40 and took them for a full tour of the freeway system and adjacent residential areas including Joyce Avenue in Arcadia. Where residents have complained of High noise Levels for some time a they agree that the residents have a problem Quot head said a the question is whether they can deviate from policy a a the division of highways policy is at the heart of the matter. The current policy is that freeway noise Barrier construction is considered Only on projects in areas where freeways were developed after 1970, or where widening or the new construction is taking place the stretch of the foothill freeway West of Santa Anita Avenue has a noise Barrier Wall because it was developed after 1970 the noise Wall was erected last year residents cast of Santa Anita have been waging a Campaign for approximately a year to get a similar Wall extending to the East City limits fifth Avenue that Section of the freeway has been open since the late 1960s the division of highways contends that if it were to place a Wall East of Santa Anita on an older freeway Section it would be forced to spend More than $300 million across the state for such noise abatement projects in order to provide equal treatment. Edwin Phelps a Joyce Avenue resident who appeared before the Arcadia City Council recently said he is renewing Calls for a project at this time because he has been told that concerted action by City and state officials would be far More effective in gaining some action than requests solely from residents Phelps said a petition to the High was division from residents in May 1973 did not result in a a Concrete answer from the he noted that improvements in West Covina along the san Bernardino freeway include noise Barrier Walls although such work apparently Falls into the guidelines outlined by state officials he said a a the philosophy of doing the work at their convenience is wrong a Phelps said he a did no to want to leave a single Stone unturned a the May 1973 petition with 72 signatures charged the Highway division with being a unreasonable in determining that a the noise Between Santa Anita Avenue West to Michillis a Avenue is any More disturbing to residents living in that Vicinity than to those living along the freeway from Santa Anita Avenue East to fifth Avenue a a Highway design Engineer replied to the petition with a restatement of division policy. He noted that Federal funds subsidized 90 per cent of the project Between Santa Anita and Mir Hillida Arcadia City Engineer Chet Howard said last week that the City Council May be asked to pass a Resolution urging Cal trans action lie said however that he could foresee Little future action unless there is a major statewide Effort to reverse policy. Even though the freeway runs through Arcadia the City has no jurisdiction Over it even it if wanted to expend its own funds for noise abatement it would be unable to do that.
