Permeable asphalt bike trail along Codornices Creek between Sixth and Eighth Streets. Map
Permeable concrete and asphalt omit fine particles from their “mix,” creating tiny gaps that water can percolate through. These gaps can become clogged so that rain cannot soak through. Or gas and oil can reach the ground through the gaps. Thus these surfaces are often recommended for areas without heavy traffic. Here, spaces in an auxiliary lot are permeable.
