Need online free instructions re building gravel roads

I need free online web site with a video or instructions about taking care of a gravel country road. It is not for me. I have successfully taken care of our roads for 15 years. The challenge is a "neighbor" who refuses to believe the road must have drainage ditches on sides for water runoff. She keeps sending her yard-man (with tractor) to fill in the drainage ditches! I need to find good online sources to share with her in order to show her how the roads need to be maintained for proper draining of the water. Thank you.

Those should get you started nicely.
 
Don't sweat petty things, or pet sweaty things. But cuddle this tiny ad:
Switching from electric heat to a rocket mass heater reduces your carbon footprint as much as parking 7 cars
