Los Altos installs cool pavement downtown

Los Altos Town Crier

A crew began the process of laying a cool pavement coating on the 100 block of State Street between Third and Fourth streets in downtown Los Altos Monday, with road work intermittently scheduled and set to wrap up next Tuesday.

Cool pavement, applied as a coat over roads, parking lots, sidewalks and similar spaces, reduces the land surface temperature by reflecting heat instead of absorbing it.

The project is funded by a $125,713 Community Resilience Grant from Silicon Valley Clean Energy, a nonprofit agency that provides “clean” electricity – energy that produces low electrical pollution – to 96% of businesses and residents across 13 Silicon Valley communities, according to the group’s website.
