And this Is just us true of a gravel or
stone road ifs of the earth surface.
At the side of the road longitudinal
ditches must lie provided for the pur
pose of carrying the water drained
from the surface of the road to some
point where it may be turned Into a
natural drainage channel. In many in
stances these side dl'.ehes also carry
drainage from land adjacent to the
road. The size aud form of the gut

onrntltvN of water to be carried and
the slope of the gutters. Where the

In forming a roadbed upon wjilch to

earth roadbed should be made as firm

placing of the surfacing material.
