I am facing just such a project and have received a number of bids (all from Angie's List reviewed contractors). The lowest bid was a bit over $5/sq ft and the highest was about $9/sq/ft for my 630 sq ft driveway in Rockford, IL.

Our Angie's List Magazine staffers produced a good comparison piece a few years back comparing the pros and cons of concrete vs. asphalt driveways, including the cost. The info, of course, is a bit dated (2010, 2011), but it should provide at least a starting point for you.

According to the experts quoted in the articles, $5 to $10 per square foot is a good starting price to consider for a basic concrete driveway installation. Again, that info is a bit dated and prices only seem to go, and don't forget that factors such as installation site, the existing driveway and other factors will likely affect the price.

Generally, about $7-$12/SF for a normal driveway replacement. Add about $3-5 per square foot if you live in a high-cost area (big city or remote area) or high concrete cost area (areas in the deep south, midwest, southwest generally have cheaper concrete), and up to another $5/SF if you are looking for colored or pattern-stamped concrete, or an intricately curved drive.

This would include removing and disposing of existing thin concrete or asphalt drive - probably another $5/sf or so if you have existing subgrade problems requiring excavation, or if you are working from scratch in lawn or raw dirt and need to have base and subgrade installed first.

More again if lateral french or underdrains are needed because of water problems or clayey soil.

Take cost of material and times it by three is generally pretty fair deal. Needless to say, times 4 can also be construed as fair, depending on the market and local taxes on business.
