We are experiencing some settlement of the blocks on the ends where the permeable sections meet up with the other pavement. The blocks on the end sections will be removed, the subgrade will be repaired, and the blocks will be re-installed. The permeable pavement system is functioning regarding preventing flooding issues downhill, as was the project’s intent. We are working through process improvements that will aim to prevent this type of end settlement in the future. Routine maintenance on Fairmount from Lombard to Central Park has been scheduled for March 24th and will only be closed for the day.
