Minneapolis is on track to keep its airport noise insulation program


The Minneapolis airport’s noise mitigation program could have expired next summer, but a new agreement would keep the system in place through 2020.

The program that has insulated 14,500 homes is still in effect, pending Federal Aviation Administration approval of an agreement between the Metropolitan Airports Commission and the cities of Minneapolis, Eagan and Richfield. The extension could impact a stretch of homes south of Lake Harriet that are projected to fall into an area that experiences an average of 60 decibels of airplane noise per day.
