37 Miss. Code. R. § 1-7501-04013-502

Restricted or neutral areas as described in SECTIONS 501.2, 501.8, and 501.9 above may be graded or filled only when the following requirements have been complied with:

1. Surface drainage is provided to drain all surface water on the graded or filled in areas away from the roadway in a suitable manner and be deposited into the natural drain. Sub-surface drainage shall be provided where required to prevent development of a high ground level that will endanger the highway pavement.
2. The drainage opening underneath the area is adequate to carry the water to its natural drain or its roadside ditches. Pipe culverts installed under these areas shall be not less than fifteen (15) inches in diameter.
3. Permanent provisions are made to separate the area from all traveled ways in order to prevent its use for entrance or exit, or for vehicular parking, by constructing concrete or other acceptable masonry curb that conform to the current edition of the MDOT Roadway Design Standard Drawings around the perimeter of the area.
4. Restricted or neutral areas' length, width and shape will vary at different locations. The lot frontage, right of way width and many other factors will determine the size and shape of such areas. When curbs are used to channelize areas they should be constructed five (5) to ten (10) feet from edge of pavement, or a greater distance if necessary to clear the prevailing shoulder width. Channelized areas shall extend to the right of way line.
