Default Ballpark figure, truckload of gravel cost?

...and roughly how many yards of 10 foot road will it cover? I am curious in the event I will need some to keep my new "road" from becoming a muddy mess. I realize the answer would be quite a rough estimate, but I otherwise have no idea. The gravel I would need would be whatever type and size has the best combination of price and doing the job of maintaining road integrity.

Thanks!

cost for a dump truck load around here is somewhere i believe in the neighborhood of $200-$250. as for how much it will cover depends on how much you need to put down, thickness wise anyway

DougMD,I have built a few roads .The best way I have found is to find out which spots are most likly to get soft and muddy,And make a foundation first (it is not a bad idea to do the whole road like this).To do this spread a layer of stone about 1 foot deep called 3B (Thats what they call it here in Va.) .It is railroad ballast.The rocks under the tracks.Use the road as much as possible .When the rocks sink into the ground put some more down.When the rocks quit sinking go back over them with some called crush-a-run.These are smaller sized stone with rock dust added to help it stick together after it gets wet.Stone around here averages $10.00 to $15.00 per ton.You can get 12 to 14 tons on a tandem dump truck.The trucks usually run about $30.00 per hour or $75.00 + tonnage a load.The driver will know how to spread them for you.Depending on how deep you spread depends on how far each load goes.Hope this helps .........swampdog

Doug a 10 wheeler can carry 22 tons, the driver can chain his tailgate and dump spread them. A yard is 80 sq. ft. 4 in thick just like concrete. It will probable cost 220-265 dollars. per load. Jusst got back fro m my cabin..
