NOISE CONTROL FOR INTERSTATE 205 IN PORTLAND, OREGON

The introduction of a major highway into an urban residential area may cause severe environmental impact unless careful analysis and planning is undertaken early in the design process. Recently, Bolt, Beranek and Newman, Inc. performed an evaluation for the Oregon State Highway Division of the proposed configuration of I-205 in East Portland. The analysis was designed to pinpoint areas of impact along the freeway route, and to recommend noise control measures for reducing these impact areas. This paper describes the techniques developed for defining noise impact areas and the considerations involved in determining effective noise control measures.
