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.
