FHWA Traffic Noise Model: Version 3.0 Software Development

The FHWA Traffic Noise Model (FHWA TNM) was originally released in 1998 and has undergone several upgrades. On May 2, 2005 the FHWA TNM, Version 2.5 became the required traffic noise prediction model to be used on Federal-aid highway projects. FHWA is currently funding the development of the FHWA TNM Version 3.0. The main objective of Version 3.0 is to contemporize the software, making sure that the FHWA TNM does not become obsolete as computers/operating systems advance. Contemporizing FHWA TNM will allow for more efficient upgrades and future maintenance. The FHWA is also funding a limited number of enhancements which will be included in Version 3.0. The objectives of the Federal Highway Administration Traffic Noise Model (FHWA TNM) Version 3.0 Software Development are to: (1) enhance the graphical user interface (GUI); (2) correct known software bugs; and (3) enhance functionality.
