A possible highway noise barrier is dividing one Eagan neighborhood.

The proposed wall would be installed along I-35 and Deerwood Drive in Eagan.

The wall would dramatically improve the quality of life for some by reducing noise from the highway.

However, it would also block the beautiful view others have of the downtown Minneapolis skyline.

The city and the Minnesota Department of Transportation are trying to develop a compromise that may include tapering the wall in places or even building part of the wall out of an acrylic sheet people could see through.
