Los Angeles is the first city in California to pilot the installation of a cool pavement coating on a public street. A gray pavement coating can reduce the surface temperature of the roadway by 10 degrees Fahrenheit, potentially offering a solution to the Urban Heat Island Effect. The panel discussion will describe the process of sourcing potential coatings, testing them for wet traction performance, field-testing in off street locations, and then installation on the public street. Various methods will be discussed for evaluating thermal performance, durability and maintenance benefit.
