Many of our residents are gravely concerned about the freeway noise and pollution levels being generated by the 405 freeway and the carpool lane fly over. Since the carpool lane project was completed, there have been no noise or pollution tests done in Rossmoor by the County (OCTA) or CalTrans.
Based on teacher comments, the children at Hopkinson School are also being effected by the increased noise levels; especially when they are playing on the school grounds.
Wouldn’t it be nice to know if the noise and pollution levels in Rossmoor are within legal limits?
Until we know what the current sound and pollution levels are, we can’t determine what if any mitigation is required by both state and federal law.
If you are interested in getting CalTrans and or the OCTA to do their job and measure the sound and pollution levels so it can be determine if the existing conditions meet both State and Federal standards, please get involved by:
- Signing the petition here.
- Contacting Supervisor Steel’s office (714.834.3220) to request that she bring the lack of current noise and pollution measurements/testing to the attention of the full Orange County Board of Supervisors so they can force the OCTA/CalTrans to do the required testing.
- Tell your neighbors about this noise issue and encourage them to take action as well.
