Railroad Noise Abatement

Railroad traffic has noise characteristics that create special abatement problems. Safety horns and whistles are loud and designed to be heard; further, they must be sounded at specific locations. Trains can be long and can maintain a noise level for ten to twenty minutes. Because trains move twenty-four hours a day, night noise events are possible. The tracks are well established and cannot be easily moved.

All of these factors reduce abatement standards to the use of barriers, possibly with landscaping, and traffic management.
