How crusher run differs from other types of gravel?

It consists of particles of various sizes: from fines to 3/4" as long as it is 3/4 crusher run. The fines make crusher run messy and dusty, unlike clear gravels. But the dust is beneficial here, as the fine particles together with bigger angular pieces of limestone can create a terrific well-compacted, interlocked structure. Some other types of gravel, like limestone screening and A Gravel, contain fines and are dusty, similar to Crusher Run. Still, the sizes of their largest particles are different: smaller in Limestone Screenings and bigger in Granular A than in Crusher Run. Besides, our A Gravel consists of granite and sand (quartz) particles, while Crusher Run is crushed limestone.

Usage of Crusher run under hard and soft surfaces

Our 3/4 Crusher Run is mainly used in making roads, driveways, parking lots and other paved areas with traffic. You can use it under asphalt, concrete, pavers, and other surfaces, even for putting green. If you pack crusher run tightly, it turns into a solid layer that stays convex and smooth under the traffic for a long time.

Crusher run base ensures traffic area with

  • no shifting
  • no dipping
  • no developing potholes

even with the vicious freeze-thaw cycles of Barrie and the area!

Best crushed stone for gravel road or driveway

If making a driveway of Crusher Run alone, it stays at the place, like 3/4 clear gravel, and does not create dust as A Gravel. Nevertheless, with the snowy winters in Barrie and the area, it is better to lay a harder paving material on top of the gravel for easier driveway maintenance.

If the surface paving material is blocks or slabs, you need to put a layer of bedding under them for easier levelling.

Dump truck of gravel cost

Our truck holds only 7 cubic yards of crusher run (unlike other aggregates). Today, 26 Apr 2022, the price for crusher run is $40/cubic yard, so our dump truck of crusher run costs $280+tax. Delivery cost is extra and depends on the delivery point. For example, delivery in Barrie ON costs $90+tax a truck ride, so a truckload of crusher run delivered in Barrie will cost $370+tax.

You can check a truck ride cost to your location on the Delivery page of this website and add it to the cost of the stone to find out how much it is to get a truckload of crusher run delivered to your location.

Other gravels' price per cubic yard may differ from crusher run's, so adjust your calculations accordingly.

Always check actual prices for stone and delivery at the respective pages of the website.

Crushed asphalt vs gravel driveway

Crusher run is crushed natural limestone, unlike crushed asphalt that is an oil product.

Crusher run consists of 3/4" particles plus a specific blend of stone dust. The stone dust fills the voids between the rocks to ensure they are interlocked tightly and will not move with time. The material can easily be compacted under any conditions to create a solid layer. It's no problem to fix potholes and ruts in a gravel driveway by filling them with Crusher Run and compacting it.

Crushed asphalt is packed only when becomes soft (under the sun or if heated in another way). In the cold weather, you will have trouble packing it. Without a strong gravel base, the ruts and potholes are created in the crushed asphalt driveway, and they are hard to fix.
