I’m going to discuss traffic noise evaluations. Whenever a street is extended, moved, altered, or another one is constructed and there are homes, schools, hospitals, places of worship adjacent, etc, a sound study is needed. The study looks to check whether sound mitigation should be installed.

5 Road Noise Analysis

Noise Expert is working on the noise study for the proposed Ina Road interchange at I-10 in Tucson, Arizona.  This is an ADOT project.  Noise Expert is responsible for the traffic noise model (TNM) which predicts the noise radiating from a road.  We are determining if noise mitigation measures (such as sound walls) are warranted.
