Complete Overhaul Slated for Northern Kentucky's I-471

Some Newport residents and their City Commission wish Interstate 471 would quiet the heck down. Not so much the cars on the interstate, but the pavement itself, which causes rumbling sounds and makes chocka-chocka noises as tires speed over it. Rob Hans, the chief district engineer for Kentucky Transportation Cabinet's District 6, promises whatever form of pavement the state uses to replace the worn out, late-1970s concrete pavement definitely will be quieter than the noisy material there now.
