Parking Lots

Parking Lots

Parking lots are paved areas intended for vehicle parking and can vary widely in size, function and design.  Parking lots can be challenging to construct, but attention to the design and construction elements will lead to a successful project.  This page gives some general guidance when designing and planning for the construction of at-grade parking lot pavements.  For a comprehensive overview of the subject, please visit the “Best Practices for Parking Lot Design and Construction” video provided by our sister paving association from Kentucky on YouTube.

A printable version of the Asphalt Pavement Alliance Parking Lot Checklist is also provided for your use when managing the parking lot construction process.
