The FHWA has developed and implemented regulations for the mitigation of highway traffic noise in federally-aided highway projects. The FHWA regulations for mitigation of highway traffic noise in the planning and design of federally aided highways are contained in 23 CFR   As it stands, the Federal Highway Administration has not approved pavement as an accepted form of noise abatement. “We have uncertainty about how long the reduced noise level from the pavement will last, and there is no guarantee that the reduction can be achieved on a consistent basis nationwide,” said agency spokesperson Doug Hecox.

      The Federal Highway Administration requires noise abatement for construction and reconstruction on the Federal-aid highway program. The National Transportation Noise Map will be an open public resource that can be used to guide city planning, transportation investment, research and even personal and family decisions, all of which have the.
