Concrete Driveway Repair

I had to cut my sloping concrete driveway in order to replace my water service mainline. I went from galvanized to copper for the water service. Now, I'm left with an open trench 12" wide by 6" deep by 17' in length.

What would be the proper patching material for this repair?
Rebar necessary?
Base material?

Any help/advice is greatly appreciated! Thank you!!

just a wag but i'd pick concrete over properly compacted granular base material when you place it, i'd trowel in contraction jnts every 20" to encourage the patch to crk where it should - NOT where it wants,,, i wouldn't use rebar
