Road Calculators

The Road Materials Calculators help you to estimate the amount of hot mix or road oil /emulsion that you will need for your jobs.

Hot Mix
To use the Hot Mix Calculator:

  • enter the width, length, and thickness of your paving job
  • click on the Calculate button

The calculator will estimate the number of tons of hot mix that will be required. This estimate is based on a density for the mix of 150 lbs per cubic foot. Please note that densities will vary somewhat between different mixes, but this value is a standard "rule of thumb" for estimating.

Road Oil Emulsion
To use the Road Oil / Emulsion Calculator:

  • enter the length of the spray, the length of the spray bar, and the distribution rate
  • click on the Calculate button

The calculator will display the number of gallons that will be required.

You can cut and paste values between the various construction calculators. For instance, you could take the result from the concrete volume calculator (which gives results in cubic yards) and plug it into the volume conversion calculator to convert your results to cubic meters.
