Lancaster, California has a musical road - like the Dutch road, there were complaints about the noise from residents; it was torn up and a new one built out in the desert.
In both cases, it was mistuned  because of a miscommunication about whether the dimensions for the spacing of rumble strip grooves included the width of the groove itself.
When I was a kid, my dad was the mayor of our town. This story reminded me of his time in office.
For example, they did a venture with a contractor using a new paving technique, in an attempt to lower future costs for street paving. When it didn't work, there was a clause protecting the city and the work was repaired at no / little cost. Of course the local newspaper raked the city over the coals for the burden of long construction times, completely ignoring that local government had attempted to do something innovative and cost-saving for its citizens.
In another case, the downtown area had become destitute, especially as the main shopping area shifted to the outskirts of town. In an effort to revitalize, the city put up new decorative lamp posts, flower baskets, and did an attractive concrete stamping on new sidewalks. Once again, everybody complained about government waste, when really the city was trying to do what it could to make it a more attractive community and encourage more businesses to reopen / stay downtown.
My point is, while perhaps the singing road didn't have its desired outcome, I give them credit for trying to do something novel.
The noise level was well within legal norms, but the provincial authorities wisely choose to remove the 'singing road' after speaking with the local residents affected by the noise.
Ostensibly, the musical effect was a secondary objective; the primary purpose of this experiment was to test the durability of the specific type of rumble strips used¹.
Long ago I once saw an ad for a kind of swag: ribbons that attached to balloons. There were ridges impressed onto the ribbon so that you could draw your thumbnail down it and it would play a sound using the balloon as the diaphragm. The ad was for a company that would put your recording onto the ribbons, your jingle or slogan or whatever.
Tom Scott drives along a Californian singing road:
I wonder if something similar could be employed to produce a noise canceling effect on jake brakes?
Obviously you wouldn't be able to get it spot on because of speed vs engine RPM but you could at least tune it for the popular combinations.
I can't believe the level of disfunctionality a local authority must attain to even contemplate such an infrastructure. I realize not everyone in local government can be a genius, but the collective IQ/EQ of this must be substantially south of 100. Then again, I know a local mayor that had cobblestones placed on a 30 meter stretch of road, officially to revive a picturesque and photogenic atmosphere near the village church, unofficially because it was right in front of the house of his political opponent which he hoped would be driven insane by the noise.
There's something similar in New Mexico.
I am told that if you back up on it, you hear "Paul is dead".
Would have been nice if the reporter let us listen to the road without them talking over it.
A completely useless video which doesn't even play the full song for us to listen to. Why are news companies so braindead?
Give them too much money and they will build you a singing road.
