I could get a pumper... but I also need to get a lot of gravel in a dump truck. I bet it'll be about as heavy as the cement, but maybe not. I'd hate to have to wheel all that down the driveway, but it might be the only option...

Again, check the cost of powered wheelbarrows.. that is what I use. Most all the time additions are in the rear with no access via truck. and if the truck gets stuck you have to pay for the tow and the extra time to get him out.

What do you think about using old railroad ties? I could lay a bunch of them side by side perpendicular to the ditch and then attach them together so that the truck wouldn't move them...

If you have them these will work over 3/4" plywood to spread the weight.

Did you look into renting a power buggy for a couple of days? Less work than building a bridge out of railroad ties. You can use it for the gravel and also for the concrete. That would be my choice.
