The original designs for permeable paving were done in Michegan- at the 
University- they hold up well to freezing and thawing as long as the subgrade 
preparation is good and strong, and the base of the paving is well drained and 
graded correctly.  If you have a local Landscape Architect they should be able to 
show you the correct procedures for permeable paving.  The same constraints 
hold true for all the paving blocks- the failures are not in the material itself 
but in the subgrade.  If you have a soils analysis of the subgrade I can 
steer you in the right direction for a workable road base without impervious 
surfaces.  A geotech report would be great.
