    Im bidding a church in town and I would like to pick your brains on how long you may think it will take. The main parking lot is wide open, asphalt and is 38000 sq. ft. Connecting to this lot is a smaller lot, wide open, gravel and is 12390 sq. ft. A one lane gravel roadway 200 ft connecting the smaller lot to a gravel drive 3850 sq ft. will also need to be plowed. There is 345 ft of sidwalks that will need to be cleared and salted. Im estimating about 1.5 hours for this lot with one truck on site. What do you guys think?

    I use 50,000 sqft per hour as a rule, with 2'-4' no obstructions for our guys.
