Arlington National Cemetery Porous Pave
Visitors discover Arlington's rich history, witness the time-honored ceremonies, take in the scenic landscapes and grounds, wander through the headstones and monuments, reflect on the names, and ponder the stories each person could tell.
Arlington National Cemetery had a need for additional pavements for the use and safety of more than 4 million annual visitors. Northern Virginia, Arlington and Fairfax counties and Alexandria have stringent storm water regulations and guidelines, therefore a Porous Pavement application was deemed necessary. The site has since installed similar products to Porous Pave with unsatisfactory results while Porous Pave met all of the specifications the Army Corps of Engineers required of the product. Porous Pave is flexible, aesthetically pleasing and has an unmatched durability which will provide years of service at the National Monument to our fallen soldiers. The project is a blend of Porous Pave XL brown and black colors. The mixture was blended on-site with the desired outcome to conform to the landscape and not detract from the experience of visiting the cemetery. When entering from the Fort Myers Chapel gate on Meigs Drive, the path is on the left and continues to the interior corner at Wilson Drive. This region was given as a test area due to the failure of competitor's material that was previously installed. Porous Pave XL has performed as designed and Aquarius Supply and Porous Pave have been awarded over seven additional miles of walkways beginning in 2016 and ending in 2019.
