I was on site the other day and all the project manager could talk about was how expensive it was to stone the parking lot where we were as compared to a job we did last year. How much are you guys paying for stone nowadays? Hauling costs?:confused:

I haven't checked recently but a 12 yard of 3/4 road base is around 250 dollars. Trucking is 95 dollars per hour minimum 1 hour. Any clear gravel is expensive so 3/4 clear, 3/8s pea and 1 1/2 drain. The most expensive is C-33 septic sand its 400 dollars for a 12 yard load.

A 20 ton load of 67 wash stone stone is dang near $400 with trucking included. I got a quote for shot rock at $33.00 a ton:dizzy: I ended up loading it from a stock pile on a jobsite for free!

The price of 3/4 roadbase had doubled in the past year.

Our's haven't gone up as much, single trucks are $80-90 per hour, I got the bill for a load of 3/4 mulch, the gravel alone was only $120, really cheap, and the total bill was only $200 including trucking.
Clear and 1 1/2" drain rock is outrageous, some have told me nearly $300-350 per truck load. It used to be 3" minus was expensive, but now it's cheaper than pit run from the gravel pits in the "hills", it's now a longer trip, so the mountain rock is now cheaper.

On a side note: I really need to do a dash board cam trip of the mountain trip up to the pits, it's such a neat adventure.

The aggregate prices have increased 50% in the last year. Recycled concrete is becoming very popular, it's still half the cost of road base.

I have seen more tri-drive trucks with 4 axle transfer delivering material from the valley. If the job site is close to highway 1 you can save $150/trip on 3/4 clear and get 2 per day, vs. buying local.

DirtMan, I found a price list online from a quarry in Virginia and it listed shot rock at $6.00/ton. Must have been a little outdated!

The price of fuel is the biggest reason why the cost of aggregates have gone up not because of short supply. The guys in the tri drives and quad axle transfers are Rons buddies most of them prefer curry :laugh:

For Vancouver trucking would be the biggest expense.

Columbia Bitulithic crushes thousands of tons of used concrete and asphalt per year.

Our increases having nothing to do with trucking. The rock is crushed on site, and the raw materials come from onsite materials. The only fuel used is that of the crusher and loader. The increase in trucking is on my part

It would not surprise me if it where correct. The local quarries have lost their mind with that price for some boulders. Then they want to load them in your truck with a wheel loader. Do you know what a 2000LBS Rock will do to your truck dropping it from a loader bucket and it falling 6' to your bed. NEGATIVE!!

$21-23.00/ton delivered for #78 depending on distance from quarry site.

It has gone up substantially this year since January for us. We were paying $18.00/ton earlier this year. I bought 530 tons this past week for backfill and will need another 200-225 in about 2 weeks.

Thank goodness we've been able to adjust the contract prices......

has gone up and has gone down in quality. Got 28 yards of 3" gravel (they said it was dot C road base) had concrete in it and tons of rebar. I picked as much as I could. I am using it for a pad and topping with reclaim so I will be fine. I reallywouldn't consider it great quality. Hopefully I didn't put any holes in my skid tires.
