DESIGNING HIGHWAYS WITH NOISE CONTROL

This paper addresses the problem of determining if noise control measures are needed for a particular highway segment, whether it be an existing or proposed one. One of the analytic tools for determining the extent of noise problems and evaluating alternative proposals for their solution is the Serendipity Motor Vehicle/Highway Noise Model, which is used to predict the noise environment in roadside areas and to evaluate alternative methods of reducing those noise levels. This model, developed for the Department of Transportation, is now being used under contract to the FHWA to evaluate the effects of highway noise in urban areas.
