How much material would it take to cement a 1 mile driveway
I would like to know, in pounds, how much material it would take to cement a driveway, exactly 1 mile in length, how many pounds of sand, cement mixture and finally gravel//brick
I think it is 2 parts sand, to 1 part cement mix to 4 parts gravel, so 2 pounds of sand 1 pound of cement and four pounds of gravel, but I also do not know how much area that would cover, the road I'm also unsure how thick it should be, some people do 2 inches the real roads I think are poured 8-12 inches
Its about 10-12 foot in width, not many sharp turns, 2 which is the same turn actually. Two steep hills, one hill about a fifth of a mile couldn't tell on the angle.
An answer below has given me pretty much what I needed. The other thing, was that I read concrete mix could be halfed out for half its part in volcanic ash to make a mix that would last two to three times as long. I'm sorry it has taken me all day to come back and update this comment.
