Driveway rock

So we have some new property as of 3 today! We have a 500' right of way. It has some stone as a base. It's the large fist size. But now I need to put some base down. Late this summer/fall I'll end up black topping it. So, my question is: what do I put down now that will act as a good drive way while I work out there, begin to build two houses in the spring and will serve as a base for black top?

Stone dust is the 'filler' in the 21 A or B (which is crush/run) that you are talking about...the dust , when wet--is what adheres and holds it all together....You want the big stone on the bottom--then the base wil eventually sift down thru it....

Different names in different areas.....:dunno:

we call it screenins here i got a load of just dust packs hard but it tracks bad sticks to shoes that ditch will make a big diffrence thres a church 2 house over thay have metal building in the back that when it came a lotta rain it would seep tru the floor well they wanted to dig ditch acroos nieghbors property n ours but nobody could agree how my dad told them to start with how to do it they wanted to dig a ugly ditch n leave it dad said no he wanted it right finly they agreed on v ditch a little bit deeper as they went made a world of difference people on the other said it made it a lot better to
