Maryland Highway Officials Test Pervious Concrete

Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

The Maryland State Highway Administration is taking its first steps to see how pervious concrete will work. Tim Smith, the agency's materials technology director, said it's being tried out in a limited way. With funds limited, the agency is only looking for now at trying it in new projects, including a park-and-ride lot and another one off Interstate 83 in Baltimore County, for a combined cost of $1.7 million. Pervious pavement also is being put down on a hiker-biker path near the C&O Canal in Allegany County, a $350,000 item in a larger resurfacing and drainage upgrade project there.
