Groundwater, Infiltration, Runoff, and Frost Characteristics of Porous Asphalt Roads and Parking Lots

Focus Area

Sustainability

Subcommittee

Air Quality, Environmental Process

Status

Archived

Cost

$250,000-$499,000

Timeframe

2-3 years

Research Idea Scope

Porous asphalt installations will be monitored and the hydrologic aspects monitored over a 2-year period to study the effects of water moving through pavement and sublayer systems as well as how this effects system performance and longevity.

Urgency and Payoff

These results would lead to the design of longer-lasting porous road facilities.
