Summary: In late 1994, Sacramento County retained BBA to perform three additional acoustical analyses of the effects of roadway repaving on traffic noise levels. The first of these analyses was a return to the Alta Arden Expressway to re-evaluate the noise reduction provided by the use of rubberized asphalt on the roadway after a period of at least one year had elapsed since the repaving. The second of these analyses focused on the noise reduction provided by the repaving of the Bond Road with conventional asphalt. The third analysis consisted of evaluating the effects of rubberized asphalt on a different County roadway, specifically Antelope Road between Auburn Boulevard and Old Auburn Road. This report presents the results of the first of those two additional studies. The Antelope Road is nearly complete, and the results of that analysis should be provided to the County before the end of 1995.
