Permeable Roads

The New York State Department of Conservation plans to move forward with a $3 million project to reconstruct a section of Beach Road on State lands and the Lake George Beach parking with porous asphalt and other storm water management features to protect water quality.

Porous asphalt is proposed to be used on most of the road. Regular asphalt will be used on turns and other highly stressed areas. Other storm water management features in the proposal include drainage collection piping and a dry swale for collection and treatment of any excess storm water runoff.
