Driveway Entrance Extension

The homeowner on this project does a lot of traveling in his pull behind camper. It’s a fairly big camper, so the turn radius can make it challenging getting into narrow entrances. Because of that he was having an issue getting in and out of his driveway with his camper. His existing concrete entrance had also fallen below the road level because of the buildup of asphalt paving over the years, and this had created a 1″ – 2″ difference when entering and exiting the concrete driveway.

The solution was to extend his entrance 3 feet on each side to widen his entrance a total of 6 feet. While doing this we took out a 6 ft section of his driveway starting at about 10 feet off the road. This allowed us to pour a whole new entrance. We raised the concrete driveway height slightly above the paved road, and the cutout allowed us to meet the existing driveway level.

The concrete mix is 3500 psi, wire and rebar reinforced. The finish is broom swept.

The result was more than enough room to enter and exit the concrete drive. Raising the concrete height also makes for a much smoother transition to the paved highway.
