Anecdotally of course, but I once lived about 2 blocks from a major freeway out west. When I moved in, the main streets were loud but the freeway... I could hear it.

After a year there the state repaved it with rubberized asphalt. The noise 2 blocks away was limited to some engines, crashes, horns. But no road noise. And driving on it was just as amazing. So quiet.

Don't know why it's not everywhere.
