This manual presents calculation procedures for estimating the day-night sound level (Ldn) resulting from motor vehicle traffic on highways and other major roadways. Using the procedures in this manual one can estimate the day-night sound levels at individual locations which are exposed to the noise of automobiles, medium trucks, heavy trucks, and motorcycles. The procedures in this manual involve simple, easy to use charts and graphs in order to estimate day-night levels near roadways. This manual is therefore designed for those who do not necessarily have any training in the fields of acoustics or noise prediction; it is intended for use by land use planners, developers, designers, and others who wish a quick method for estimating the noise exposure at a location near a roadway.
