The area where I live recently added 2 more lanes to the main road. I am the first street in. Even though I installed double pane windows throughout the entire house the noise at night especially is maddening. This seems like such a complex issue, high frequencies, md frequencies, hollow doors, etc...I am open to suggestion.

  • How big is the street now, how much traffic, what kind of traffic (all cars, trucks, etc)? Did the new windows help at all, and if so how much? – mmathis Jan 22 '18 at 19:29

  • The street was one lane going each direction. It is now 2 lanes going each direction. All types of traffic, cars, motorcycles, semis, trucks, etc...The thing is when I had the windows installed in 2014 the road had not been expanded yet. I believe there surely is a difference from what it could have been but it is not enough. – DBerr3507 Jan 22 '18 at 20:26
