SouthEast Pavement Inc is the Atlanta GA metro’s premier paving company because we always take care of our local commercial clients. Recently, a business owner just north of Atlanta, got an email from the team at SouthEast Pavement Inc about how we upgrade commercial asphalt parking lots. Their asphalt parking lot had faded parking stripes, but it also wasn’t compliant with national laws, which is a serious problem so we went out to take a look at what we could do in regard to their pavement markings.
The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) requires that businesses provide parking spaces that are accessible to individuals with mobility disabilities. The number of spaces depends on the size of the parking lot and other factors, but at least one space should be van accessible. The ADA also requires specific markings to show where these spaces are and that they’re specifically for users with disabilities.
All of these ADA regulations can be a lot for commercial property owners to keep up with, but the dangers of ignoring them far outweigh the costs. The professional contractors at SouthEast Pavement Inc have the expertise to make parking lots ADA compliant without breaking the bank. We were happy to design an efficient parking lot for our Atlanta business owner.
Our paving crew got to work quickly to bring the lot into ADA compliance. First we used high quality asphalt to install a ramp for individuals who use wheelchairs. Next, we restriped the entire parking lot with professional traffic paint, creating new parking spaces, painting traffic arrows, as well as handicap parking symbols and hazard stripes. The business owner was very pleased with their new parking lot striping, and SouthEast Pavement Inc had a new satisfied client in the Atlanta GA area.
