Driveway pouring question
How long after a new driveway is dug out before the asphalt can be poured?
A friend has had her driveway dug out for a month and the contractor said they are waiting for it to settle before they pave.
Is that truth or fiction from the contractor?

Your question made me curious. I found this article:http://www.familyhandyman.com/...lt-driveway/View-All
According to them, after soil is mechanically compacted it should sit about a week.
