More Tweed New Haven airport neighbors may get soundproofing help

A second noise study to determine which neighbors of Tweed New Haven Regional Airport will qualify for soundproofing paid for largely by the federal government is nearly complete, Tweed New Haven Airport Authority Executive Director Sean Scanlon said. The subcontractor doing the study is HMMH, the same consultant that did the original study, Scanlon said. The noise study — done long before the arrival of Avelo — identified a total of 184 homes in New Haven and East Haven that have outdoor noise levels that might be high enough to qualify for federally-funded noise mitigation measures. Scanlon said there will be “two upcoming opportunities for people to get money for noise mitigation.” One will be through the FAA’s main program and one will be through the $5 million community benefits package that Avports, Tweed’s contract operator, and the authority committed to.
