Total Reconstruction and Widening of MP 40 to 48
Traffic Noise Study

The project team conducted a noise study in compliance with Federal Highway Administration regulations and the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) criteria to determine if project-related noise impacts will occur and to determine whether noise abatement (noise walls) for affected areas is warranted, feasible and reasonable.

The noise study for the Milepost 40 to 48 Project identified the area on the north side of the Turnpike between the Butler Valley Interchange to Poff Elementary School, to be considered for possible noise walls (click here to view mapping of the area).
