This page contains interesting stories about permeable pavement. If you have a good story, send us a link using the Comment box and we will consider including it on this page. There are hundreds of permeable pavement applications in Minnesota. Examples will be updated as more information is gathered. For now, here are a few examples:

  • The City of Shoreview has 5 permeable pavement installations. The Dale Street Alley has 12 foot wide pervious concrete; the intersection near Shamrock Park has porous asphalt; the Woodbridge Neighborhood has pervious concrete; the public works facility has pervious concrete and the Oakridge Avenue project uses a 20 foot wide permeable concrete block system (PaveDrain). For information on any of these projects, contact Shoreview City Public Works Director, Mark Maloney at
