Pavement, Drainage, Lighting, Striping, Signage, Barriers, Landscaping and Maintenance. Great parking lots are safe, attractive, drain efficiently when it rains and are screened from residential areas. Striping and signage indicating regular and handicapped parking spaces, as well as direction of traffic flow, should be clearly marked. Safe pedestrian walkways, including easy access for wheelchairs, need to be separate from the traffic-flow areas. Landscaping that offers shade and visual relief while maintaining good sight lines is beneficial. In areas where it snows, good parking-lot planning also demands setting aside holding areas where snowplows can pile snow without blocking parking spaces or the flow of traffic.
Parking lot design involves many considerations. All too often the only consideration for the design is developing a sufficient parking area to meet the required number of vehicles based on adjacent occupancy.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
