Salt Strategies for Open Graded Friction Courses (OGFC) and Porous Pavements
Research Idea Scope
Porous pavements can provide the same level of service with much less salt/de-icing. Project will identify study sites and nearby control sites, then study the sites over 2 winter seasons.
Urgency and Payoff
Reduced salt use, improved runoff water quality.
