A heavy mass (telescope) at the end of a cantilevered metal beam will be very prone to low frequency vibration. Your concrete pier will have greater mass and stiffness so it will have a higher fundamental frequency – which is why it does not ‘see’ the road noise. Sand filling will move that frequency higher but you may need a more drastic shift.

Best of luck.
