Driveway depressions are low areas of pavement that don’t penetrate the asphalt and are usually caused by poor compaction from paving. Water can build up in the depressions over time and cause them to become weak. Here are some ways to fix depressions:
- Asphalt patch: A quick fix for small depressions is to put some asphalt on top of the pavement where the depression is. This is a temporary fix and could cause the depression to sink more.
- Removing the depression: A more permanent repair would be to remove the affected area and replace it with new pavement.
