How long to stay off freshly paved surface?

You may wonder, is it okay to walk on or drive on my new driveway? The best answer is, stay off the asphalt as long as you can.

One can walk on the new surface right away, it may stick to your shoes, but it is ok to walk to and from your destination. In hotter months, it is advisable to not park or drive on your new driveway for at least 3 days. In less hot months, one can stay off for 1 to 2 days.

Parking in one spot for a long period of time, on a freshly paved surface, is still not recommended to do for at least a week. Overtime, the asphalt will adjust to the enviornment and won't be as "vulnerable" to parking, turning wheels, draining of water, etc...
