What's driving you crazy: Noise on I-29 and I-80

COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa (KMTV) - A quiet neighborhood in Council Bluffs has a noise problem, with cars driving past home in high speeds. 

"The sound is increased, its gotten so loud," Don Hansen of Bluffs Acres said. "It's a serious concern." 

Complaints were heard by the Iowa Department of Transportation time and time again. Don Hansen worked with Dan Vorland, a neighbor in the area, to get a solution. And, after an initial rejection, a solution is in the works. 

Officials are working to get the area a berm to absorb the sound. It is similar, but less expensive, than a wall. 

"We're excited for the residents," Hansen said. "We're very excited."
