State to test jet noise levels tomorrow on Allwood Drive

November 24, 1996

Beware of what sounds like low-flying planes.

With loud speakers hoisted 20 feet high, the Maryland Aviation Administration will simulate jet noise between 9: 30 a.m. and 4 p.m. tomorrow in front of two homes on Allwood Drive, just east of Baltimore-Washington International Airport. If it rains, the tests will be done Tuesday.

The simulation, which will be conducted in 30-minute intervals at 231 and 232 Allwood Drive, is supposed to determine the most effective method of soundproofing homes in the neighborhood.

About 50 homes along Allwood are eligible to apply for money from the Aviation Administration to seal out low-frequency sound generated by jets taking off.

Neighborhood residents who have questions or concerns may call 865-1310.
