  • Abstract:
    For the past three decades, the U.S. Department of Transportation’s John A. Volpe National Transportation Systems Center Acoustics Facility (Volpe Center) has been providing noise-related technical support to various government organizations at the Federal and state level, including the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA), the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans), as well as others. The technical support has laid the foundation for many related policy and/or regulatory decisions. Although the Volpe Center is not a policy-setting organization within the Government, one of its chief roles is to provide the necessary technical support to the policy and regulatory decision makers. This paper presents two case studies which demonstrate the Volpe Center’s role in augmenting related policy and/or regulatory decisions in the area of transportation-related noise.
