Evaluation of Polymer-Modified Pervious Concrete to Traffic Safety

Environmentally friendly pervious concrete has been traditionally limited to low speed, light traffic roads and parking lot due to durability concerns. A recently proposed research to the Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) will make it possible to apply pervious concrete to heavily trafficked major highway as well. This proposed STC matching research will analyze the improved safety benefit of applying pervious concrete to major highways. Additional safety related testing will be conducted in the laboratory. Through a comprehensive literature review, international survey, and analyses of the materials' safety parameters, the safety benefit of pervious concrete in highway applications will be quantified. Based on the results from this study, safety considerations will be incorporated into the future GDOT material and design specifications for pervious concrete pavements
