Soundproofing Ideas for Highway Noise?

Good Questions

Q: I recently rented a great 2 bedroom apt in New Brunswick, New Jersey. Awesome location near the theater and dining and trains to NYC and Philadelphia… plus I can walk to work. The apartment has great windows. The only problem is, after only 10 days, I am losing my sanity because I cannot sleep due to the noise from the traffic on the highway below me. Any suggestions for sound proofing or something that can neutralize the noise? Please, please please!
