Design of Parking Lots and Garages.
McConochie, William R.
Layout, control, and sign posting in the design of parking facilities is discussed emphasizing self parking and automated control. Considerations such as site, traffic, function of the facility, city codes, and sizes are related to design considerations. Traffic control factors are related to the direction and placement of cars and the collection of fees. The importance of lighting parameters in the design of traffic control signs is emphasized. The author concludes that design criteria for parking facilities are open to improvement. The appendix includes layouts of parking facilities. (JP)
