You really should sub this out to an acoustic engineer.
There is guidance with NCMA http://ncma.org/home2.html on sound walls used
along highways. Check out their Tek Notes.
Deck manufacturers like Vulcraft make sound absorbing deck. Check it out.
For general information take a look at Noise and Vibration Control, TM
