Minnesota Public Radio
Minnesota Public Radio’s downtown studios and offices are located on the Central Corridor LRT line in St. Paul. Their building houses recording studios for radio and music performances that were required to be exceptionally still and quiet both during construction and during operation of the train. Specially designed isolated tracks, as well as several building noise mitigation systems, were installed by the LRT contractor to maintain the building’s important function of delivering world-class broadcast radio and music productions. MPR relied on ESI’s experience to advise, review designs, and measure performance of these mitigation systems.
