Neighborhood Citizens Against I-95 Noise (NCAIN) is a group of concerned CT Citizens who have come together to have Governor Ned Lamont to “Do The Right Thing".
The “Right Thing” for Governor Lamont is to have the state of Connecticut and Department of Transportation use proven materials and technologies which will dramatically reduce NOISE POLLUTION generated by significantly increased vehicular traffic on I-95.
The majority of noise is generated by tires, particularly truck tires. Trucking is way up, noise is way up and our quality of life is way down.
Noise pollution is becoming the second biggest health hazard in the US. Diminished learning, AFib, depression, tinnitus, and sleeplessness are just a few of the maladies caused by noise pollution.
WHY DOES CONNECTICUT NOT EMPLOY ANY OF THE KNOWN NOISE REDUCTION TECHNOLOGIES?
Why does New York, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania & New Jersey (even Texas and many other States) all use methods and materials to reduce road noise? All we get from Hartford is a bunch of gobbledygook.
Why does Hartford have **58% of all Noise Barriers? There are eight counties in Connecticut and ONE has 58% of all noise barriers! What about the 7 other counties?
The time has come to act.
