Question Garage floor curing

Last week I had a floor poured in my pole barn. It is 6" thick 4000# concrete, with fiber reinforcement and rebar in the apron (which is up to 12" thick). I live in NY state so the temperature gets cool at night. How long should I let it cure before setting up the car lift I bought or moving cars in?

In Iowa, summer thru fall, 6" slab - road construction (3500lb test) was 7 days before you could drive on it. That would have been coated with sealer right after the pour.

Some of the hot pack stuff was driven on in three days. That would have an accelerator and extra cement put in it though.

You can get the same information for New York quickly by calling your county engineer's office. I'm sure they would tell you.

Hope this helps,
