Most concrete driveways are removed and replaced in the same day. Removing the forms and backfilling happen on the 2nd day. Asphalt driveways are also 2-3 days for new and 1 day for resurfacing.
Depending on the temperature you can use your new concrete driveway 7 to 10 days after the concrete has been poured. 7 days during the hotter months of the summer and 10 days during the milder temperatures of the spring and fall. New Asphalt driveways may used after 72 hours.
During the curing process your concrete may under go changes in appearance. The spots you see are the aggregate that are at the surface. As the concrete cures your driveway will become lighter and these spots will disappear.
