Noise

Noise Wall.jpg

Highway traffic may create noise impacts on adjacent properties. KYTC evaluates current and predicted noise conditions and provides abatement where traffic noise impacts result from new highway projects.  Long before construction of the project begins, KYTC collects noise data, estimates the traffic volume and, with the use of the FHWA Traffic Noise Model, predicts the potential impact of traffic noise.  When warranted, abatement measures, usually in the form of Noise Barriers are constructed to block or shield the adjacent property from traffic noise impacts.
