Map: Road and Aviation Noise Exposure in Detroit

Screen Shot 2017-03-26 at 9.14.10 PM.png

The Bureau of Transportation Statistics (BTS), I didn’t know it existed either, has released a new map tool showing areas where people are more likely to be exposed to road and aviation noise over a 24 hour period.

Not sure the modeling is quite right for Detroit City Airport? Do planes actually leave from there? If you live in Dearborn or West Detroit you’ll be exposed to a lot of airplane noise from Detroit Metropolitan Airport.

  1. Hello Alex! This is a fascinating map! I live off of Jefferson and Conner and yes planes do leave and arrive at Detroit City Airport. Typically the planes are smaller charter planes and in my opinion the noise is not bad at all!
