The road, along the slope between the Amnun Junction and Nahal Koah, was damaged by mechanical equipment. The damaged section, as well as a 25 m long segment of the road, which extends west of the section, were cleaned during the excavation. An area (L1; 2 × 5 m, depth 0.5 m; Fig. 3) close to the eastern end of the segment and two small areas along the shoulder of the road (L3, L5), which yielded no finds, were excavated.
The roadbed (thickness 0.4–0.5 m), built of one or two courses of small and medium basalt stones mixed with soil, was the only surviving element of the road (average width 4 m; Fig. 4). The stones were filling the empty spaces between the protruding bedrock and the larger basalt stones that lay on the surface. One may assume that prior to paving the road the very large stones were removed from the planned route. The road was bordered  by curbstones that survived in several places to a height of three courses. In all likelihood, the roadbed was covered with a layer of packed and leveled soil that facilitated the movement of pack animals and wagons. Several potsherds dating to the Roman or Byzantine periods and one fragment from Middle Bronze Age II were found in the fill of the roadbed.
The meager finds do not enable us to determine when the road was paved or the duration of its use .Z. Ilan had suggested in the past that the road was paved in the Roman period, when other roads were built in the Galilee (ESI 9:16). However, the construction method is uncharacteristic of the Roman period and its quality is inferior to that of the Roman and somewhat later roads, such as the ‘Akko–Zippori–Tiberias road, whose sections have been studied near the Golani Junction (HA-ESI 114:22*). Therefore, the road should probably be dated to the Mamluk period, possibly to the time of Sultan Baybers (thirteenth century CE), when rapid mail routes were prepared in the country for horse riding, to link Egypt with Syria (Y. Tepper and Y. Tepper 2003. The Barid of Horse Couriers from the Time of Baybars: A Description of the Road in the Lower Eastern Galilee and the Golan and a Historical Discussion. Jerusalem and the Land of Israel 1:123–152), or possibly to the fourteenth–fifteenth centuries when Khan Jubb Yusef was built. It is also possible that the road was paved only in the Ottoman period, along with the construction of the stone bridges, as evidenced by the Ottoman-period building style of small dressed basalt stones that may be observed at the Nahal Koah bridge (ESI 16:31, Fig. 32).
