A Road Map for Advancing Permeable Pavement as a Stormwater, Transportation, and Flood Control Solution

John T. Harvey and David R. Smith

Institute of Transportation Studies, Working Paper Series from Institute of Transportation Studies, UC Davis

Abstract: The University of California Pavement Research Center and the Interlocking Concrete Pavement Institute worked with partners in the concrete and asphalt pavement industries and Tongji University to organize a workshop in November 2017 with the goals of identifying knowledge, information, and communication barriers to adoption of permeable pavement of all types, and then creating a road map to address and overcome them. The workshop brought together stakeholders from the planning, stormwater quality, flood control, and pavement communities to listen to presentations, exchange ideas, discuss unanswered questions identified by the group, and develop a proposed road map to fill the gaps in knowledge, processes, and guidance. Participants represented local, state and federal government, consultants, non-governmental organizations, contractors/ material producers, and academia. The road map produced from the discussions is built around “routes” of proposed actions to remove technical and institutional barriers to realize the goal of making permeable pavements a fully viable alternative in standard practice.
