Brickyard Park and Ride Case Study: Pervious Asphalt and Integrated Site Stormwater Design

The Brickyard Park and Ride project demonstrates the usefulness of pervious asphalt pavement to maximize onsite stormwater management despite potential obstacles of underlying soils, slopes, sensitive areas, and groundwater levels. This project indicates there is broader potential application and suitability of pervious asphalt pavement to a wider range of sites than one might initially assume. A key to broader use of porous asphalt is early and ongoing interdisciplinary coordination with the geotechnical engineer, landscape architect, and others to resolve potential design obstacles. The integrated stormwater detention and asphalt pavement design became a cost saving as well as a hydraulic and habitat benefit to the adjacent wetland area.
