Guidelines for Pervious Concrete Sidewalks, Parking Lots, and Shared-Use Paths to Improve Drivers, Bikers, and Pedestrian Safety

Objectives of this study are: (1) Test safety aspects of pervious concrete sidewalks/parking lots/bike lanes in winter conditions; and (2) Develop additional best-practice guidance for winter maintenance of pervious concrete installations. The research team has combined expertise in the two broad areas of pervious and traditional concrete material characterization and winter maintenance safety. The research team's expertise will enable them to exactly target the proposed research focus. The project ties with PacTrans’ theme of safety and data driven solutions for safe transport. Equally important to the research team's expertise is their access to several pervious sidewalks and parking lots on the Washington State University (WSU) Pullman campus, which enables unique in-field experiments.
