SECOND REPORT OF SPECIAL TASK COMMITTEE ON ROADSIDE DESIGN TO REDUCE TRAFFIC NOISE, DUST, AND FUMES

THE FIRST REPORT OF THIS COMMITTEE SUMMARIZED THE 1953 STUDY ON WHAT WE KNOW, WHAT WE DO NOT KNOW, AND WHAT RESEARCH IS NEEDED FOR 'ABATEMENT OF HIGHWAY NOISE WITH SPECIAL REFERENCE TO ROADSIDE DESIGN.' PART I OF THIS 1954 STUDY (SECOND REPORT) OUTLINES WAYS AND MEANS TO OBTAIN ANSWERS TO UNKNOWNS ON REDUCTION OF TRAFFIC NOISE ON MAJOR HIGHWAYS. METHODS, EQUIPMENT, AND UNITS OF MEASUREMENT ARE REVIEWED FOR GUIDANCE IN FIELD TESTS INITIATED TO MEASURE AND EVALUATE TYPES OF BUFFER PLANTING AND OTHER METHODS OF ABATEMENT. COMPARATIVE FIELD TESTS ARE NEEDED TO ASSIST THE HIGHWAY ENGINEER IN ABATING TRAFFIC NOISE THAT IS OBJECTIONABLE TO ROADSIDE DWELLERS. PART 2 OF THIS REPORT PRESENTS INFORMATION AVAILABLE TO DATE REGARDING TRAFFIC FUMES ON MAJOR HIGHWAYS. /AUTHOR/
