Porous Asphalt Pavement Performance in Cold Regions

Status:  Complete
Report Date:  04/30/2012


Full-depth porous asphalt test sections at MnROAD performed well in terms of draining and filtering water, providing excellent traction and noise absorption, and hastening snow and ice melt. While the test sections did exhibit rutting and surface raveling problems, their overall performance was acceptable and may well suit low-volume and reduced loading applications.
