Maryland 216

Bridges & Highways

Howard County, Maryland
2002

The aesthetic treatments for these precast sound barriers arose out of a desire to reintroduce the natural environment that was being obscured by this three-mile interstate highway expansion. These panels feature iconographic images of Maryland’s indigenous flora and fauna, including trees, birds, and landscapes. The panels in this design are modular and can be reconfigured into an infinite number of unique combinations to create miles of designs.
