State performs sound tests on LIE

Long Island Expressway traffic rumbles by Maspeth with unbearable noise.

After complaints from residents on LIE southside, New York State officials conducted sound tests and discovered decibel levels exceeding maximum sound levels. Most of the complaints are from residents living east of 71st Street. State Department of Transportation officials are in the process of polling residents to see how many want sound barriers.
