MEASUREMENT AND CONTROL OF AIR POLLUTION PRODUCED BY HIGHWAY CONSTRUCTION

The volume and size of dust particle emissions from two major highway construction projects were monitored using high volume samplers, impactors, preseparators, and an integrating nephelometer. The success and practicability of using this equipment for dust control is discussed. In addition, a literature search was performed and the information was incorporated into the report. (FHWA)
