Why The Thickness Of Your Parking Lot's Asphalt Surface ...

2020-11-19  Asphalt Thickness Depends On Usage. The purpose of your pavement will determine the appropriate asphalt thickness. While we are talking about parking lots, specifically, we still need to consider the size of the lot and daily traffic volumes. 2.5 – 3 inches of asphalt over a 6-inch aggregate base is sufficient to handle light traffic.
