i think the best and fastest way to do this is to get a tanden with 12-14 tons loaded and he should (driver ) find safe place to get along the drive with out being on it and dump piles using one of the hatches in the gate .i like the trucks with two side hatches.

next use a tractor with a 3 point box blade keep leveling it out tire for tire this will compact it for you and will not settle after it rains and you have to do it over.

some thing else if its flat good but if theres slopes dont turn your truck over .
this way you dont mess black top up (scratches, twist and turn marks,) and dont stop or park on it and it settle a little making tire endenttions.
5" should be thick enough for 14 ton loads
if you have to drive on it go but dont stop .driveing some thing that heavy on it is good for the cold joints that didnt seal.
keep that tractor on the trailor till you get it were you need it the tractor tires will mess it up
if you mess the top up heat it up with a torch and put a little fuel oil on the bottom of your boot and steep it in.

15 years of that nasty work and thats the way we did it.
dont forget to put sone boards down along the edges that you will be driving over so you dont break the blacktop down.
you should be abal to get a truck and driver for $50 per hour it dont take long to unload a truck with a 5 inch edge
