A set of procedures has been developed and is presented here to give highway engineers greater capability in predicting, evaluating and alleviating traffic-generated noise impacts on the community through highway design practices. The procedures include a manual method using nomographs and a computer program that incorporates plotting routines to identify problem locations. The design guide procedures may be applied both to location or design studies for new highways and to projects involving modifications to existing highways. /Author/
