How Long Does Asphalt Take to Cure?

Asphalt takes approximately one year to fully cure. However, this does not mean that you need to avoid your new road, driveway, or parking lot for that long! Try to keep people, pets, and vehicles away for at least 24 hours, or up to three days if possible. Avoid parking very heavy trucks on the new asphalt for at least a month. After that, be careful for the first 12 months. Try not to park in the same spot every day.

Avoid spilling corrosives such as gasoline, antifreeze, oil, or transmission fluid. Lay down a board under kickstands, car jacks, and similar sharp or pointed objects. You might notice some scuff marks, but with these precautions, this minor damage should become less visible over time.
