2008 - USA - Little Book on Quieter Pavements

The idea of designing and building quieter pavements is not new, but in recent years there has been a groundswell of interest in making this a higher priority. Various State Highway Agencies and the Federal Highway Administration have responded accordingly with both research and implementation activities that both educate on the state-of-the-practice, and advance the state-of-the-art. The Little Book of Quieter Pavements was developed with this purpose in mind… to help educate the transportation industry, and in some cases the general public, about the numerous principles behind quieter pavements, and how they connect together.
