Cool Pavement Pilot Program

The City of Phoenix Street Transportation Department selected portions of eight neighborhoods and one city park to receive cool pavement treatment as part of a pilot project. Cool pavement is lighter in color than traditional asphalt or other seal coatings. Cool pavement reflects back the sunlight that hits it. Because the surface reflects rather than retains heat, cool pavement has the potential to offset rising nighttime temperatures in Phoenix.

We are applying this cool pavement coating to extend the life of existing pavement and allow us to study the effectiveness and durability of the material. We have prepared this webpage to help answer some of the most common questions people may have about cool pavement and the city's pilot project.

What is cool pavement?

It is a water-based asphalt treatment that is applied on top of the existing asphalt pavement. It's made with asphalt, water, an emulsifying agent (soap), mineral fillers, polymers and recycled materials. It contains no harmful chemicals and is compatible with traditional asphalt.
