Asphalt Paving: BuildPro STL Repaves the Royal Gate Dodge Dealership Parking Lot in Columbia, IL

Automotive Dealership Parking Lot Gets a New Life: After more than 20 years in business, Royal Gate Dodge of Columbia, Illinois, was ready for a newly paved parking including a new and improved parking lot striping configuration. Having used us for concrete work in the past, the owners of Royal Gate Dodge called BuildPro STL and gave us a chance to bid the job. Needless to say, we were able to both beat our competitors’ bids AND provide the highest quality paving solution.

Project Overview

Old Asphalt, Cracks and Potholes, Poor Drainage

After more than twenty years, we weren’t surprised that Royal Gate Dodge’s large parking lot, most of which sits on a pronounced downward slope, was suffering from wear and tear, as well as some pretty serious drainage issues. 

This job would require more than just a new layer of asphalt. We would need to regrade portions of the lot in order to direct water away from the building, off the lot, and into the proper drainage systems.

Because we were doing new asphalt on three sides of the building, the job was not a simple one. But with proper planning, good grading, and well placed curbs with drain outlets, we now have the water going where it should, and staying away from the places it’s not wanted.

Measure Twice, Cut Once, So the Saying Goes

With each new pass of asphalt, much planning needs to take place. Taking into account where the seams will go and how they will line up with the light posts is always a challenge. The giant square parking lot with no obstacles is the white whale that just can never be found.
