driveway crevasse

06 Mar
The snow has been giving way to warm temperatures this week..which has led us to trouble and a dilemma. We need 10 more sheets of drywall to finish all of the inside of the house and I am scared to attempt to drive over this crevasse..it is on the lower part of the hill on the private road..I noticed it developing a couple days ago and I was so scared to drive over it last night that I didn’t even drive in..I got to it and turned around..it snowed last night so it does not look as bad but it was a mini-river last night…well A* and I took a walk to look at it today to gauge our options..and they are somewhat limited.

I've got a bad feeling about this..

the gap is around 12-18 inches wide and 18-24 inches deep..and it is winding down the road so there is no way around it…only over it.Either way something has got to give cause the drywalling needs to be done. DONE!

    oh – THAT looks nasty!!!!

    my inclination would be to bust out the chainsaw and stuff it with logs where necessary and put some plywood over the logs – this would be temporary of course… how about all that dust gravel you bought a while back ;-) do you have a 4×4??

    is there anywhere you can make a trench to divert the flow – it looks like it’s gonna get bigger.

    THAT would freak me out and i would have the same luck as you, back of the truck filled with the next project…

    i bought a bunch of lumber a couple of weeks back and had to have the tailgate down… when i drove up our driveway i left 8 sheets of osb at the bottom… slid right off. had to hastily empty the truck and back down withe the tailgate closed – not what i had in mind.

    i am really sorry – good luck – that’s a major problem, hope you can fix it soon!!
