prices on driveway

looking at adding a 11x40 driveway at the house. What am I looking to spend at something like this? I was thinking I could get it all done for about $1500. Or am I looking to spend more?

thanks

also if there is anyone that does this for a living give me a pm

$3.00 a sq.ft. plus "curb cut" ($150) and apron (transition) from street to drive...but that's just a guess. $1500-$1700?

Anyone ever find someone reputable to do a driveway or parking pad? I need a parking pad extended for the toy hauler. Looking at 15x30 or so.

I'm having the same 15x30 area needed concreted for the exact same reason, and I was qouted $4 a sqr ft. for the concrete, rebar and light dirt work since its pretty much level. $1800 total completed by Blackwell Concrete.

Are there any kind of permits needed or restrictions on the part of the driveway that connects to the street? The beginning of my driveway (the part that blends the street to my driveway) has a weird angle and even my mustang at stock height scrapes. I just want a better transition.

I think every city is different. Everything i'm doing is going to be behind the fence.

In Arlington, if you are going past the sidewalk towards the street or into the street, you need a permit. Otherwise, from the sidewalk to the back fence, you dont.

How did they do the estimate? They send someone out or just over the phone? Since we are thinking along the same lines, do you plan on adding in an electrical hookup?

permit requirements are different for every city. look to spend in the $4 per sq.ft. price range for a 4"thick, rebar, broom finished driveway. drive approaches are a bit thicker so the price might increas a bit.

I have got done my driveway last year. Dimensions are almost the same except that mine was a bit wider 13X45. Mt concrete company charged me around $1800. Considering that it was last year and cement prices today, I guess you will also have to send the same amount even if your driveway is a bit narrower.
