Project Scope

Marten Transport's terminal in Tampa, FL, faced a challenge. Their existing 150,000 square foot lot was divided equally between asphalt and grass, limiting their parking options. They desired full utilization of their land without the hassle of modifying their current stormwater layout.


TRUEGRID's 100% permeability and detention volume offered Marten Transport the ideal solution to meet their parking needs while maintaining efficient stormwater management. The company was able to create additional parking spaces on their lot without the necessity of constructing a detention pond or altering their existing stormwater infrastructure.


The transformed parking lot is utilized daily for both 18-wheelers and employee traffic. Marten Transport was thrilled with the outcome of the initial installation, and this success prompted them to expand their partnership with TRUEGRID. They will be installing a second yard this summer in Orlando using TRUEGRID's permeable paving system, with plans for further installations throughout the state.

This particular project was completed in October 2020 by Texas Eco Pavers, showcasing the effectiveness and durability of the TRUEGRID system. The  image above shows the immediate installation and the right image displaying the lot's present condition 2 1/2 years later.
