When can I drive on new asphalt?

Asphalt takes 30 days or more to cure, but you do not need to avoid driving on it for that long. Driving is generally okay after 2-3 days, and parking after 3-4 days. You might see some scuff marks from the tires, which you can minimize by not turning the steering wheel while the car is stationary, but they will generally fade over time.

Avoid parking very heavy vehicles such as construction trucks on the new asphalt for at least 30 days, and put down cardboard or plywood to protect the asphalt from motorcycle kickstands or other sharp objects. If your vehicle leaks any fluids, put something underneath it to protect the asphalt when you are parked.
