The noise in williamsburg north condos and I assume south and the townhouses is getting ridiculous from rt 3 and lately its really bad at all times of the day. Huge tractor trailers traveling too fast to the 2 lane merge and dangerous curve onto rt 46 constantly throw on their jigg breaks that shakes my whole house. I have several ideas 1) a sound barrier wall along rt 3, which also could avoid a drunk or sleeping driver from plowing into our pool or complex parking lot and killing someone. it would also improve the view from our pool imo since nj highways arent exactly eye candy.
My 2nd idea is maybe a little radical but could even set a new trend and that is a "NO JIGG BREAK ZONE" and instead make the speed limit lower aproaching the rt 46 merge and give tickets for usage like they do for honking in NYC. This of course wouldnt help with the motorcycles that go by all night with no tail pipes which also sound like an airplane taking off. I guess only the wall would help with that.
Reducing the speed limit near the parkway down to 40mph could also help, and may be the cheapest and easiest and might even prevent accidents from the terrible merge.
Its just not fair that I cant keep my windows open and smell the fall air because I will be awoken from my sleep all night.
And yes i know i moved next to a highway but i assure you in the past years its gotten way worse the jigg break usage has gone way up and the motorcycles without mufflers has gone way up, idk why.
