Noise Analysis for the Potomac River Commuter Ferry Service Study and Route Proving Exercise

Prince William County, Virginia conducted a study and route proving exercise for Potomac River Ferry Commuter Service. The project consisted of assessing the feasibility of a commuter service of multiple runs from marinas in Prince William County and possibly Maryland and Fairfax County, to marinas at Old Town Alexandria, National Harbor, and South East Washington DC.

Straughan executed a noise testing plan that resulted in the use of two noise testing teams on the banks of the Potomac River. Noise tests were conducted at 19 receptor sites along the Potomac River in Maryland, Virginia and Washington D.C. in order to gauge the likely noise impacts due to a ferry vessel in noise sensitive areas along the banks of the Potomac River. Straughan also prepared a feasibility report based on findings.
