I think my 10 yo old numbers up here in MA were 2.75/sq yd but it was over 5000 linear feet of driveway.

we redid our community's road with tar and chip last year. It's a single lane dead end and doesn't get high volume. I think the job stank. Maybe for a driveway, but even at that I think it would get destroyed by snowplowing. I will have to repave my own driveway soon -- maybe 5000 Sq Ft -- and I shudder at what the cost of asphalt will be.

Our driveway (the paved part) is about 9,000 sq. ft. Highway mix was laid down and the base was designed to carry the load of parked tractors (transport trucks). That was approx. $11,000 C.

Having you seen that new process where they pave the road (the tar stuff) then they stamp and paint it to look like bricks. It was done here about 3 years ago on a small section of street and it still looks great.
