This study investigated the noise associated with highway construction activities. It involved the identification and examination of: highway construction activities, noise characteristics associated with highway construction activities, availability of highway construction noise abatement measures, demonstration of construction site noise abatement measures, and development of a computer-based model for use as a tool to predict the noise impact of construction activities and to plan mitigation measures. The model was developed for use on the FHWA computer (IBM 360). A total of seven reports were prepared in this study and have been released for public distribution. This report provides additional information to the Part B report on the highway construction noise model installed at DOT's Transportation Computer Center on an IBM 360 computer. It delineates the differences between the version of the model as installed on the IBM 360 and the two models (HINPUT and HICNOM) operating on the Wyle Computer (PDP-11). The report has additional user's manual information for use on the IBM 360, a programmer's manual describing changes in going from the PDP-11 to the IBM 360, and a maintenance manual.
