Tenn. Comp. R. & Regs. 0400-42-08-.02 - ACCESS ROADS
"Access road or haulageway" shall mean any road constructed, improved or used by the operator (except public roads) which ends at the pit or mine and which is located within the permitted area.
Operators are required to plan such roads in accordance with accepted engineering standards with proper protection of streams by culverts where traversed. No road shall be constructed up a watercourse or drainage channel proper, or so close to its banks that material would spill into the channel during construction, use or maintenance. The location of the proposed haulageway shall be identified on the site by visible markings at the time the reclamation and mining plan is preinspected and prior to commencement of construction.
If the haulageway is to remain as a permanent road, it shall be left properly surfaced and drained for minimum maintenance by the landowner. If the road will be abandoned, it shall be graded to the approximate contour of the adjacent land and sown in grasses.
