City Hopes Cool Pavement Pilot Program will Reduce Temperatures in Hottest San Antonio Streets

The city of San Antonio is testing different cool pavement products as part of its Cool Pavement Pilot Program to reduce temperatures in the city's hottest streets. The program will test 12 different cool pavement products to determine which ones are best at reflecting more sunlight and absorbing less heat. The products are being tested across different neighborhoods to ensure that equity is considered in the project. The city hopes to see surface temperature decreases of 10-15 degrees, similar to the results seen in other cities like Los Angeles and Phoenix. The project will cost an estimated $1 million and is funded by the city's Resiliency, Energy Efficiency and Sustainability Program Fund.
