Curb and Gutter Paving in Fort Lauderdale, FL
Concrete curb and gutter is a vital component installed around the perimeter of roads and parking lots. It plays a crucial role in defining the edges of the parking lot, holding the pavement in place, and acting as a “barrier” to prevent pavement expansion and deterioration. The unseen part of the curb and gutter is approximately eight inches thick and forms an extremely robust barrier below grade.
In most parking lots, the drainage patterns are engineered to flow using the “gutter pans” of the curb and gutter. Unlike asphalt, concrete can be placed with precision, even on relatively flat lots, allowing for efficient drainage. Installing curb and gutter is the first step in the parking lot construction process, and it is done to a strict tolerance. The asphalt is then laid to slope towards the curb and gutter, enabling water to flow to the catch basin or other exit point.
