Blair acts as a site for "noise monitoring"

by Grace Harter, Page Editor
The Maryland State Highway Administration (SHA) performed "noise monitoring" and "analysis studies" for an environmental study today, Wednesday, Jan. 26. The project, which utilized cameras and noise receivers, was completed on Blair grounds from 10 a.m. until 11 a.m.

Business Manager Laurie Checco said that the project had nothing to do with Blair and that Principal Phillip Gainous simply approved it. Checco is "not even sure Blair will get the information [about the tests]."

The SHA, which collaborated with the company Johnson, Mirmiran and Thompson (JMT), was studying the level of noise in Montgomery and Prince George's counties. Blair's location was chosen because of its proximity to the Capital Beltway.

Neither the SHA nor the JMT could not be reached regarding the results of the research.

    This had nothing to do with Blair. Furthermore, Blair is loud.
