I-4 Ultimate construction project prompts noise complaints

ORLANDO, Fla. -The construction project on Interstate 4 can get pretty noisy at times when residents want peace and quiet.
The I-4 Ultimate project has brought plenty of work and noise, including the rumbling of heavy equipment and the beeping of backup alarms at night

Residents who live near the construction zone must endure the busiest work times, which are overnight.
Backup alarms on the equipment let workers know to be on the lookout because safety demands it. But those same sounds can be a nightmare for neighbors.
“The noise is invasive. When you’re in your home and you can’t get rest or sleep, that’s invasive,” resident Brian King said.
King emailed the contractor to ask if the alarms could be toned down a bit, but he was told the volume is needed for safety. he also wondered if the work hours could be changed.
“There’s 24 hours in a day. Maybe the eight hours we’re trying to sleep could be off-limits,” King said.
But a good bit of the I-4 construction happens at night by design because it interrupts traffic less.
There’s also the weight of the equipment as it rolls along.
“The entire house would shake. You would have thought there was an earthquake. Things on the shelf are shaking. The entire house is shaking,” King said.
“I walked into the bathroom and had to catch a couple of bottles of perfume just falling off the shelf,” resident Jenya Kimlat said.
Even Kimlat’s refrigerator has the shakes, but she figures there is a bright side.
“It’s been a pain, but I feel like I’m investing in the future of my city,” Kimlat said.
King agreed the work is needed despite the noise and disruption.
The Department of Transportation said workers will often be changing locations as the work wraps up, so things could quiet down and get noisier in other spots.
