    Estimating help. First roadway account I was asked to bid and they want a seasonal bid. I'm lost. I know I should tally up what I think its worth per push and multiply by an average number of pushes over so much time. But I'm lost at a price to start with.
    It's an island 1 1/2 car wide road and it's a just over a half mile long. Here is the arial view, the road's start from the bridge.

    Here's the link

    If you haven't though of this already,take into consideration wind direction,drifting etc. when putting your seasonal together; you may visit more than you think. sorry, I'm not from that part, so I cannot use my costs versus yours. good luck
