Private Road RepairsCrush and run gravel is made from tiny pieces of gravel that is mixed with limestone.
This is a useful top layer for gravel driveways because the limestone sticks together when wet, helping the driveway last longer.
Crush and run gravel driveways are affordable and can last for years if they are properly maintained.
Once your grid surface is fully clipped together, then you can begin loading 15-20kg of your 10mm-20mm gravel per grid.
No further compacting is needed to get the surface level or to inset the stones.
Once filled, your driveway surface is now ready to be driven over for years to come! The basics: River rocks are larger than pea gravel, typically 1 inch and larger in diameter.
They're available in a variety of colors, costs and sizes, and are used to create dry creek beds or to direct drainage through a property.
Cost: This type of rock is sold by the pound or by the ton.
A truck load of gravel costs $1,350 or more with a 10-yard minimum, including delivery and spreading based on the rock type, amount, truck size (double or tri-axle), and travel distance.
Most rock-fill jobs use a 3-man crew plus a tractor for $46 per hour that spread 12 cubic yards per hour.
The formal definition of Class 5 Gravel is limestone rock crushed and screened to a maximum size of 1 inch.
In the UP of Michigan there are variations of class 5: the two most common are “23A” and “Western Limestone.” What distinguishes the two types is the “binder” that is used that allows the gravel to be compacted.
