GROUND VIBRATION INVESTIGATION AT HIGHWAY CONSTRUCTION SITES AND MARKETING PROGRAM

This report deals with measuring ground vibrations on construction sites in terms of peak particle velocity to determine whether a legal problem exists in relation to these ground vibrations. The report furnishes information needed to protect the Department from unwarranted suits. The report indicates that vibrations associated with pile driving are not of enough magnitude to cause physical damage to surrounding structures. Ground vibrations from haul roads do not appear to be of concern in view of the data from pile driving and measurements made at several haul road sites. The reason some legal suits are filed may be a combination of construction produced effects (sight, sound, feeling) which are irritating to persons near the construction zone. on-board rider surveys and household surveys provided further insight into many qualitative and quantitative measures of the impact of the transit marketing strategies. This monitoring report reviews the Kingston Transit Community Information and Marketing Program and presents analysis and conclusions pertaining to ridership trends and public attitudes. (Author)
