LAX Residential Sound Insulation Program

City of Los Angeles Soundproofing Program – LAX (Completed)

Los Angeles World Airports, working closely with local Council offices, implemented a voluntary Residential Soundproofing Program (RSP) for aircraft noise impacted communities in the City of Los Angeles near LAX.

The program offered sound insulation to residential building owners in areas of the City of Los Angeles that were in the 65 dB CNEL noise contour shown on the 4Q92 Contour map.

Duration of the Residential Soundproofing Program

The Soundproofing Program began in 1997 with the implementation of projects within the highest noise impacted areas of Westchester and Playa Del Rey. At that time, LAWA opened a community office in Westchester, which remained open to the public until September 2009. Two demonstration homes, one in each of the areas included in the City's RSP in Westchester/Playa Del Rey and South Los Angeles, were used to showcase the sound insulation products available to homeowners.  After an extensive outreach effort to contact all eligible homeowners, LAWA issued the final program participation deadline of June 1, 2010, and closed out the program in 2014.  At program completion, LAWA soundproofed over 7,300 residential dwelling units in the City of Los Angeles near LAX.
