I re-read this a few times. I get what you are trying to do but it won't work. Try cutting the asphalt where you want the curb and form on top of the edge of the asphalt, so you're curb starts at the asphalt edge. You can not adhere concert to asphalt or sandwich asphalt in between concrete even with rebar. The other thing you need to remember is you can never tie a moving object to a object with footing and expect it to work. That's why I seperate my floors from the wall, dowels will help with heave but expansion is the enemy and will destroy the floor or wall.

If you bring in even a Mini excavator becareful of the asphalt, it is soft and the customer might get pissed if you mess it up. Equip trailers, delivery of materials and so on can destroy the asphalt. It does not hold up like concrete.
