  I have done this over a driveway here. In fact it is a 935-foot  long 
pair of broadside phased Beverages in which one goes over the driveway 
and at that spot is elevated to about 14 feet high for a distance of 
about 50 feet (normal height for the rest of it is 10 feet). Perhaps it 
wouldn't have made any difference, but I raised the other element a 
similar amount at that spot even though it wasn't over the driveway. 
This antenna works extremely well toward JA.
