Noise & Vibration Field Studies Posted 05.17.2012
The NEPA process requires evaluation of noise and vibration to determine the effects of those elements of the proposed project on the environment and community. Potential noise and vibration impacts will be evaluated and documented in the EIS in accordance with federal guidelines. These field studies are planned to begin May 21, 2012 weather permitting, and data collection will take approximately one week. A variety of small monitoring devices will be located within public spaces, and the technicians will collect data continuously over 24 hours from rail and highway sources. If you have any questions about these studies or any other questions related to the project, please contact the project team by email at: email@example.com.
