Highway noise barriers are meant to quiet the sound of traffic for neighbors, but they're generating a roar of their own. Some residents complain that the drab concrete walls, such as those being installed along I-71 in Cleveland's Brooklyn Centre neighborhood, are just plain ugly. They want a better look, perhaps natural barriers like walls made of vegetation being tried elsewhere in Ohio. How to get sound walls that are pleasing to both the ear and the eye, Wednesday at 9:00 on 90.3.

common sense would have been to tint the walls green to blend in with vegetation.. i suspect the company who installed them knew this so they can come back and say “hey, for another $$$ we can paint the walls to blend in with surroundings”
