A $1-million contract to better insulate 30 single-family homes from aircraft noise from the Bob Hope Airport was unanimously approved by the Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority on Monday.
Fifteen single-family homes in Burbank, 14 in Sun Valley and one in North Hollywood will receive door and window replacements, additional attic insulation and weather stripping to shield airplane landing and takeoff noise, according to an airport staff report.
The latest round of improvements will cost $1.068 million and will be installed by NSA Construction Group, Inc., which has worked on several similar projects in the past and offered the lowest bid for the latest work late last year.
It will take about 210 days to complete the acoustical treatments, according to the report.
This project is the latest phase of an ongoing effort since 1997 that’s, so far, installed acoustical improvements in about 2,300 residential units.
About $92.8 million of mostly federal money has been spent on improving homes, while $11.9 million was spent on schools near the airport, said Victor Gill, an airport spokesman.
