US 67 Beltline Road to I-20 Traffic Noise Analysis

Project Name: US 67 Beltline Rd to I-20 Traffic Noise Analysis

Project Location: Duncanville and Cedar Hill, Texas

Project Type: Traffic Noise Analysis

Owner: TxDOT Dallas District

Hicks & Company provided environmental services to support the expansion of approximately six miles of US 67 within the cities of Duncanville and Cedar Hill from four lanes to six lanes, including three 12-foot mainlanes in each direction with ten-foot outside shoulders and nine-foot inside shoulders. A Traffic Noise Analysis Technical Report was submitted which included a noise wall analysis; examination of potential barrier locations; discussion of noise abatement measures; and prediction of future noise impact contours. The noise modeling resulted in reasonable and feasible noise barriers and a Traffic Noise Workshop was held with adjacent landowners.
