The PATH that paves the way… POROUS PAVE

Walking and Biking Path

A shared use path of Porous Pave XL was recently completed in Orlando, FL for students to travel to and from The Academic Center for Excellence.   This two-mile-long path included 75,000 square feet of Porous Pave WL permeable pavement and installed by Permeable Coating Solutions, Inc.  The path extends along the east side of Westmoreland Drive, the main thoroughfare in Parramore, the historic African-American neighborhood in the west-central area of downtown Orlando.

Porous Pave the best option

This project required highly permeable materials because of poor drainage in the area and problems with stormwater runoff.  Porous Pave XL is a highly porous and durable pour-in-place paving material made from 50 percent recycled rubber chips and 50 percent kiln-dried aggregate mixed on site with a liquid binder.  “Porous Pave was a good choice because of its high degree of porosity and ther material’s aesthetic qualities,” said Clint Pletzer, PE project manager, AVCON, Inc. the engineering and planning firm in charge of the project.

Sustainability is a primary focus of Mayor Buddy Dyer and the Green Works Orlando initiative, which aims to make the city one of the most environmentally-friendly communities in the nation.  “permeable paving supports the program’s goals,” said Lisa Henry, PE, CFM, streets and stormwater division manager for the city.  “With its recycled rubber, Porous Pave is green, as well as permeable, and its durability contributes to lower life cycle costs.”
