Porous Pavement Performance Evaluation in a Cold Weather Climate - Randolph Park and Ride

The objective of this research initiative is to examine the overall performance and pollutant removal efficiency of an experimental previous park and ride located in the Town of Randolph. This will be accomplished by documenting site characteristics such as soil permeability and frost susceptibility with reference to the water table, construction practices with special emphasis placed on grading, compaction and concrete placement, and the occurrence of any surface distresses including cracking and spalling. Infiltration efficiency will be monitored over time with respect to the previous concrete wearing course and underlying soils with consideration to winter maintenance and pressure washing activities. Pollutant removal will be assessed at varying depths within the basin as well as the incidence of bacterial growth at interface of the basin and underlying soils. Accomplishments thus far include all water quality samples collected on December 15th being analyzed by the Agency of Natural Resources. Onsite permeability testing was conducted on Thursday, March 5th, April 14th, and June 17th. A summary of winter maintenance activities was received from District 5. Periodic inspections were conducted to examine the wintertime performance of the porous concrete.
