Default white rock/road base calculator

Need to resurface my lane and driveway around the house. How many square feet will a yard of white rock/road base cover? Got to go 720 ft at about 12 ft wide.

3" thick you'll need 80 yards
2" thick you'll need 54 yards

It depends on how thick you are laying it. A yard is 27 cubic ft.

If you were going to go 12ft wide by 3 inches thick, a yard would cover about 9 ft.

Man, I have a pretty solid existing base of rock already down so I am thinking 2" should get me in good shape.
