ABSTRACT
The article describes a study conducted by the East Carolina University Traffic Noise Research Team that aims to decrease the noise level to at least three decibels lower than average in North Carolina highways. It describes how the team is measuring tire/pavement interface, a factor which accounts for 90% of traffic noise. It adds that the goal is to identify low-noise pavement materials that are suitable for North Carolina.
