Print this Article | Send to Colleague

St. Louis is known as the concrete overlay of asphalt parking lots hub when it comes to the number of projects done in any geographical area, reports NRMCA Senior Vice President, Local Paving, Jon Hansen. A recent project and demo, which included a program on the history of parking lot overlays and the emerging technologies influencing their use, drew an audience of over 100 on July 18. The two-hour event included a presentation by Hansen along with lunch and viewing the placement of the concrete overlay at the Marquette school, which includes 350,000 square feet of concrete overlay along with pervious concrete sections to bring the school in compliance with stormwater requirements.

Saint Louis enjoys over 30 concrete overlays of asphalt parking lots, with the Fort Zumwalt school district alone having 12 of its facilities upgraded with concrete overlays with more planned. The current largest parking lot overlay in the nation is at Northwest High School in Cedar Hill, MO, 40 miles southwest of Saint Louis.
