Abstract—Traffic noise is considered a predominant source of pollution in urban areas. Yet, limited amount of work has been done on the issue in Jordan. This study was carried out with the aim of providing a better understanding of traffic noise in Jordan and its impacts. Noise levels were measured at 18 selected sites in Amman, the capital of Jordan and the validated British CRTN method was used to predict future noise levels at the same sites. The results of analyses of the noise data reveal that the measured traffic noise levels still high and exceed the maximum allowable limit at all survey sites while the CRTN model still valid under Amman’s traffic and road conditions. An attempt was made to monetize the economical noise impact using several costing scenarios including hedonic pricing technique beside other methods applied and proved to be acceptable in developed countries. A minimum – maximum annual noise cost of a range between $ 81 and $ 240 million was produced by the various scenarios.
