Pursuant to the requirements of House Joint Resolution 691, 2017 Session of the General Assembly, the department, in cooperation with the Federal Highway Administration, shall develop procedures to measure and assess the highway related noise impact on neighborhoods that were previously studied for noise impact but ineligible for noise abatement and mitigation remedies at the time of the initial study."
