Roadwork Filter: The road adjoining mine is being resurfaced. About 2 weeks ago, the surface got chewed up and roughened by one of those enormous road scrapers. [more inside]

How much does it cost to pave (asphalt) a small driveway? Gravel is already in place, it is a small driveway and an area for 3 cars to park.
Are there different methods?

Why does road paving take so long in Massachusetts? Last year, when the Mass Pike was being paved, it was a multi-month project. They would mill the road, leave the milled road as is for several weeks, then pave it. The process of covering the length of the work area took several months.
By comparison, when I lived in the DC Metro area, paving happened overnight on Route 66 in Northern Virginia inside the Beltway - seemingly instantaneously. One machine would mill the road, collect the milled asphalt, turn it into new asphalt, lay it, and then it would be paved -- in hours, not weeks or months. They would mill/pave one lane one night, then move to the next lane the next night. [more inside]
