Cool Pavement Program Honored by Arizona Forwardhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/street-transportation/2278Street Transportation3/21/2022 6:30:00 PMhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/NewsArticle/Attachments/2278/Cool Pavement Program - AZ Forward Crescordia Award 2022 (Newsroom crop).jpgCool Pavement Program Honored by Arizona Forward<div class="ExternalClass38CE14FFAF634AEFA015C78904745DF7"><html> <p>​The Phoenix Street Transportation Department's <a href="/streets/coolpavement" target="_blank">Cool Pavement Program</a> received a Crescordia Award in the category of Climate Action Solutions at <a href="https://arizonaforward.org/" target="_blank">Arizona Forward</a>'s 40th Annual Environmental Excellence Awards Gala held at the Arizona Biltmore Resort on Saturday, March 19. In partnership with Arizona State University (ASU), the program studies how an innovative asphalt seal coat technology could provide meaningful relief from the urban heat island effect. To date, 36 miles of neighborhood streets citywide have received the cool pavement treatment.<br></p> <p>Asphalt collects and retains heat during the day and releases it at night. The cool pavement coating reflects a higher portion of sunlight that hits it, absorbing less heat. Because of this higher reflection, the coating has the potential to offset rising nighttime temperatures in the region. </p> <p>In 2020, nine locations were selected to receive the seal coat. The city then worked with ASU researchers to conduct scientific tests of the cool paved areas, studying how it performed and how it might be used to lessen the retention of heat within the built environment. <a target="_blank" href="/newsroom/street-transportation/2064">Results of the first year of the study</a> showed that the average surface temperature in test locations is 10.5 to 12 degrees Fahrenheit lower than traditional asphalt at noon and during the afternoon hours, and that surface temperatures at sunrise averaged 2.4 degrees Fahrenheit lower.  </p> <p><a target="_blank" href="/newsroom/street-transportation/2113">The next round of the ongoing study started in October 2021</a>, and will analyze two new asphalt coatings that have higher reflective values than the material applied to the nine locations in 2020. One coating is the same light gray color and the other is a darker gray. City staff and ASU researchers also will analyze the durability of the coating during this next phase. <br></p><p>WATCH: <a target="_blank" href="/newsroom/street-transportation/2131">Cool Pavement Program Update​</a><br></p> <p>Arizona Forward is the state's leading sustainability not-for-profit organization that has successfully worked on major environmental initiatives for Arizona since 1969.
