City of Rockport | "Construction Underway on Bent Oaks Parking Area"

Construction is underway on a 14-space parking lot on the Maple Street side of the Bent Oaks property. Overlooking Little Bay and Key Allegro, the 8.85-acre property, which the City purchased in 2016, features the community’s bird rookeries and signature windswept oaks.

After reviewing bids, the project was awarded to Lee Construction for $49,900. They will be installing Pavestone Grasstone II permeable pavers, similar to the parking area at the Henderson Natural Habitat location. Estimated completion date is late August.

According to the manufacturer, Grasstone II is a versatile paver that is used for surface stabilization for both sloped and horizontal applications. This grid-like paver provides a sustainable solution to surface erosion allowing infiltration of water and the ability to establish vegetation. The parking lot’s proximity to Little Bay and the need to manage stormwater made the Grasstone II paver an attractive solution.

Grasstone II reinforces grass areas by providing a concrete matrix support combined with topsoil and vegetative cover. The layer of concrete pavers and organic materials are constructed over a structural base course designed to carry the anticipated loads and repetitions, which minimizes rutting and creates a suitable platform for intermittent vehicular use.
