patching concrete ?

my temp driveway has a bad spot. about a 2'x2'x2' triangle. i have not dug it out. but i would say its at least 2-3" deep, and perhaps all the way down, idk yet.

this needs to be patched before the snow(blower) hits. and being around freezing, idk about cement. i was thinking i could use asphalt cold patch.

what do you think ?

You might catch a day in the low 50s & you can use cement or try calcium chloride in the mix.

thanx, but i don't see that happening any time soon.

i am going to try the cold patch. its not expensive, and it doesn't need to last a long time., and it isn't driven on.

I'd be inclined to "gently" hit the patched area with a weed burner first, to warm things up a bit and hasten the cure. Just don't set fire to anything.

well, there ya go, taking all the fun out of it

update:
i got all the junk out of the area. turned out to be no deeper than 2". and less in many areas. 2 bags were almost enough. it seems like a "good enough" fix = it would be better if i had used another part bag = but i don't see this as being very permanent, so its not an issue. this was basicly put in to remove a tripping hazard and so i wouldn't throw rocks when snow blowing.
