The Arizona Department of Transportation is touting the addition of fins for the sound walls along parts of the Pecos Road portion of the South Mountain Freeway.

Standing at intervals atop the sound wall between 40th and 48th streets, the custom-designed panels resembling fins are “decorative accents inspired by some of modern architect Frank Lloyd Wright’s early work in Arizona,” ADOT said in a release last week.

Painted a reddish accent color that extends in a saw-toothed pattern down the sound wall, they also appear on retaining walls, abutments and bridge barriers in the area.
