To Address Construction Vibration and Potential Effects to Historic Buildings Adjacent to Transportation Projects

Richard Carman, PhD, Principal Investigator. Deborah Jue and Ani Toncheva of Wilson Ihrig also contributed to the project.

Research Firms: Wilson Ihrig, ICF, and Simpson, Gumpertz & Heger. This synthesis compiles current and successful practices on the analysis and mitigation of vibration impacts to historic buildings resulting from roadway projects. In addition, this compilation includes current and successful practices that help the general public and historic preservation stakeholders understand the science behind these analyses in terms of the extent that vibration impacts may adversely impact historic buildings.
