Permeable Interlocking Concrete Pavement (PICP) at Industry in Denver
MHFD is monitoring two different permeable pavement sections in the green alley located at the Industry site on Brighton Blvd in Denver. Both of the sections provide water quality capture volume and detention storage for the 100-year storm below the surface of the pavement. With input from a group of stakeholders including local consultants, geotechnical engineers, and manufacturers as well as nationally recognized experts in the PICP industry, MHFD developed a method for integrating a sand filter into the standard pavement section per the Interlocking Concrete Pavement Institute (ICPI). This involves placing the base aggregate course and then washing the filter media into the base course of the pavement. The second section for evaluation at this site does not include the filter media and represents the standard pavement section per ICPI specifications.
