One way to control water on a road system is to ensure that the road is constructed in a way that safely and efficiently sheds water from its surface. When constructing a road, pay close attention to the topography, soil types, and drainage patterns. You can then use techniques such as crowning and ditching, outsloping, and removing trees along the road to facilitate drying as the site dictates.

The main goal is to direct the surface runoff water off the road’s surface quickly, while providing for safe and efficient vehicle travel.
