The Job

20 acre trailer parking lot

About the Project

L. Long constructed a 20 acre heavy duty parking lot for the storage of over 700 trailers at the Hanesbrands Rural Hall Distribution Center.  This five million dollar project included large scale grading, storm drain, retaining walls, fencing, cement stabilization, asphalt paving, concrete paving, site lighting, a permanent bio-pond, and over 600 trees.  The earthwork presented unique challenges, in that much of the grading was performed in the dead of winter using lime to dry all fill material.  Additionally, large temporary stormwater retention ponds were required within the footprint of the fill area, meaning that the phased removal of the ponds and installation of the storm drainage network as the fill was constructed required a great deal of planning and coordination.
