ROCHESTER, Minn.- The Minnesota Department of Transportation are adding “mumble” strips across intersections in Minnesota.
The new strips are similar to “rumble” strips that are already on highways and intersections. What makes these strips different is that they emit less noise when a vehicle travels over them.
MnDot’s District 6’s communication director Mike Dougherty tells KIMT that the difference is in the pattern.
“It’s a wave that will reduce noise in neighborhoods,” said Dougherty.
MnDot has already begun installing the mumble strips. The installation has a minimal impact on routes.
Dougherty still wants people to pay attention to any construction signs.
“For everyone’s safety please pay attention to lane changes or reduce speeding signs.”
