Noise pollution is a growing problem that affects our physiological and psychological health. Despite noise codes being reinforced through local laws, a complaint is deposited every four minutes in a city like New York or Trenton. In this project, we establish the relationship between the health effects of noise pollution and the socio-economic status of areas in Trenton. To start tackling the noise pollution in those areas, we envisage novel esthetic noise barriers to effectively create quieter regions. However, designing such barriers is a challenging task due to i) absence of literature on noise pollution in Trenton; and ii) the temporal nature and range of the noise levels that need to be absorbed by the barriers. This project will explore these challenges and solutions.
