Project Profile:

Fox Chapel Area High School

Project Summary

GP2 reinforced grass parking areas provide spots for additional cars during peak events. Even on a normal day there are cars parked parallel to the asphalt off onto the grass. The outer limits of the reinforced parking areas have vertical guard rails as used on highways. This is a good way to treat the edge since there are a lot of slopes beyond the GP2.
