Representatives from the georgia department of transportation are getting input from maconites.
People from Shirley Hills and the North Highland neighborhoods met at Highland Hills Baptist Church Thursday night to voice their opinion about noise barriers on I-16.
The barriers will be part of a bigger interchange reconstruction project scheduled to break ground in the Summer of 2017.
GDOT representatives laid out their project, took questions from people, then broke off into smaller groups for more intimate discussions.
"It's our community and it's going to be a long term project and we want to make sure that the property values and also the aesthetics of our community are maintained" -- Robert Stamps, attended GDOT meeting
GDOT representatives say more meetings are scheduled for different neighborhoods over then next several months.
