Another Missouri Walmart Gets Concrete Paving

Following the concrete success story reported earlier in E-NEWS of a Walmart in Bridgeton, MO, NRMCA Senior National Resource Director Jon Hansen reports that another of the retailer's locations, this one in Bowling Green, MO, will prominently feature concrete. He learned of the development from the concrete contractor at a recent industry meeting in St. Louis. The store is not a SuperCenter, but one of Walmart's smaller market stores built in the past 18 months.

"The now standard Walmart white roof, along with a light colored parking lot and concrete access roads incorporating a concrete roundabout work together to maximize the lighting and heat reflectance of this project," Hansen said. A Google Earth photo of the location is seen at right, along with a front elevation photo prior to the store opening shown here.
