NOISE ASSESSMENT OF THE GREATER CLEVELAND REGIONAL TRANSIT AUTHORITY HEAVY RAIL TRANSIT SYSTEM

The report describes the noise climate on and near the Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority (RTA), formerly the Cleveland Transit System (CTS), Airport Line. The RTA urban rail transit line has approximately 19 miles of two-way revenue track (of which about one mile is in subway), and 18 stations. Noise level data is given for specific measurements made in cars, in stations, and along the non-subway wayside at appropriate locations. The rationale for choice of measurement sites and the methodology for arriving at the summary noise distributions from the data are discussed explicitly. Measurement and analysis instrumentation and procedures are also described.
