Illinois Community Excited About First Pervious Concrete Street

Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

The good people in the Illinois community of Westmont are pretty excited and for good reason: part of the South Cumnor Road reconstruction project will include pervious concrete. Pervious concrete has been used for numerous alleys, driveways, parking lanes along roadways and parking lot projects, but never for an actual roadway in the region. "This project demonstrates our community’s commitment to addressing stormwater management concerns while maintaining an environmental-friendly approach," Westmont Mayor Ron Gunter said. "It’s exciting that Westmont is the first municipality in the state of Illinois to construct a pervious concrete street."
