The fact that a particular development is not specifically identified in one of the Schedules does not necessarily mean that it falls outside the scope of the Regulations.
This is the process by which all feasible and reasonable mitigation measures are incorporated into projects to minimize noise impacts and protect the public health and welfare. For Type 1 projects, UDOT will evaluates noise abatement for areas with noise impacts from the project.
Analysis of Traffic Noise Impacts The traffic noise analysis will include the following: Identification of existing developments and undeveloped lands for which development is permitted.
Determination of existing and future worst case noise levels. Determination of traffic noise impacts. UDOT considers a traffic noise impact to occur when either of the following situations is expected: The future worst case noise level is greater than or equal to an increase of 10 decibel dBA over the existing noise level.
This impact criterion takes effect regardless of existing noise levels. The future worst case noise level is equal to or greater than the UDOT Noise Abatement Criteria for each corresponding land use category. Common land use categories and their corresponding Noise Abatement Criteria include the following: Feasibility includes engineering considerations, safety on urban non-access controlled roadways, and acoustic feasibility.
To be considered feasible, noise abatement measures must provide a 5 dBA or greater reduction for at least 50 percent of the front-row receptors. Reasonableness looks into the noise abatement design goal, the cost effectiveness of setting up noise abatement measures, the viewpoints of property owners and residents via balloting, and the noise receptor locations.
To be considered reasonable, noise abatement measures must: Provide a 7 dBA or greater reduction for at least 35 percent of the front-row receptors.
At least 75 percent of the ballots sent out on the proposed noise abatement measure must be returned. At least 75 percent of the returned ballots must favor the proposed noise abatement measure.
Traffic Management Measures, such as truck restrictions or reducing speed limits Noise barriers Noise abatement measures analyzed and deemed feasible and reasonable in the environmental study phase are still subject to final design and balloting.
Relocation of Existing Noise Barriers There may be circumstances when existing noise barriers must be relocated or replaced due to conflicts with new construction projects, and where the barriers do not meet new specified criteria.
Existing barriers will most often be relocated or replaced in-kind.Lewis Operating Corporation, Deep Creek Project (Apple Valley) Notice of Preparation (January 29, ) of environmental impact report for the Lewis Operating Corporation, LHC Alligator, LLC, Deep Creek (Apple Valley) Project..
