On March 19, 2020, in response to COVID-19, the Ontario Government announced the Municipal Emergency Act 2020 which relaxed noise by-laws across Ontario to permit delivery of goods in the evening and night-time, between 7PM and 7AM, which we term off-peak deliveries (OPD), across Ontario.  OPD have potential to improve carrier efficiency, reduce traffic congestion during daytime periods, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.  Concerns that have been raised about OPD include noise associated with deliveries in the off-peak hours and the potential for increased truck collisions rates and severity. This presentation describes a research project that investigates these impacts during the period of the pandemic, with an analysis of community noise complaints and a community noise survey conducted in the summer of 2021.
