Concrete parking lots serve many transportation facilities, industrial plants, commercial developments, and multifamily housing projects. They are used for storing vehicles and goods, and provide maneuvering areas and access for delivery vehicles. The design and construction of concrete slabs for parking lots and outside storage areas share many similarities with the design and construction of streets and highways, but they also have some very distinct differences. A full appreciation of the differences and the modification of design and construction procedures to take these differences into account can result in economical concrete parking lots that will provide satisfactory service for many years with minimum maintenance. This guide includes information on site investigation, thickness determination, design of joints and other details, paving operations, and quality-assurance procedures during construction. Maintenance and repair are also discussed.
