Abstract

Urban areas of Beirut suffer severe traffic congestion because of a deficient transportation system resulting in economic losses and adverse environmental impacts. Grade separations are proposed at several intersections to minimize this problem. Noise levels, which highly depend on the geometric configuration of an intersection, are a major environmental concern. This paper presents a noise impact assessment at a typical intersection where a grade separation is proposed. For this purpose, field measurements were conducted to define current no
