Permeable pavers to replace asphalt on Tinley Park street

Tinley Park is receiving a $200,000 grant from the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District to install permeable paver blocks on a downtown street.

The pavers on North Street, between Oak Park Avenue and 173rd Street north of the Oak Park Avenue Metra station, will replace the street’s asphalt surface and greatly reduce stormwater runoff, allowing more than 58,000 gallons of water to slowly percolate into the soil during a storm, according to the district.

Tinley Park is one of 19 green infrastructure projects receiving funding from the MWRD, the district announced late last month. Locally, Calumet City, Dolton, Ford Heights, Lansing and Thornton School District 154 also are receiving funds…Please click here to read Mike Nolan’s story in the Tribune/Daily Southtown, or here for MWRD’s press release. Information about last summer’s call for projects is here.
