Quiet Pavements Synthesis

With the recent developments in the area of highway noise and the need to better understand the contributing factors, remedies, and the effect on the public, the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) finds it necessary to investigate the recent advancements and upcoming research needs in the area of highway noise characterizations and the impact of pavements and their effectiveness in reducing highway noise. The objectives of this study are: (1) to better understand and identify the potential factors, including but not limited to pavement surface characteristics, affecting traffic noise and the contribution of these factors to the wayside noise generated by traffic and (2) identify and assess the available methods to reduce wayside noise and the benefits and limitations of the different methods in reference to quiet pavements.
