Cold Spring Looking to Control Highway 23 Noise
COLD SPRING - Cold Spring is looking to reduce vehicle noise for those traveling on Highway 23 through the city.
The city has heard complaints from residents in the nearby 3rd Street South neighborhood and received a petition regarding the noise from the Highway.
Residents have also complained about noise from motorcycles and truck jake brakes.
Cold Spring is now looking into possibly putting in a sign on the highway to remind motorists of the city noise ordinance.
Police Chief Chris Boucher says the road is lower than the homes, creating an echo effect that's more noticeable when residents have their windows open.
"A sign should make people aware in that area and create more common courtesy," Boucher says.
Acting city administrator Kris Dockendorf says the city council is expected to discuss the topic further during their next meeting on April 28th.
