The road (L13; exposed length 19 m, average width 1.8 m, average depth c. 0.2 m; Fig. 3), sloping westward, was hewn into the kurkar bedrock. On both sides of the road, along its entire length, were two channels (width 0.25 m, depth 0.1 m beneath road level), which were probably created by the wheels of carts traveling along the road. A rock-hewn courtyard, which had been discovered in the past (Ronen and Olami 1978:16*, Site 105), was identified approximately 40 m east of the road. The road was probably linked to this courtyard, although no physical connection was unearthed (Fig. 4). Beside the road, to its north, was a severance channel (0.45 × 0.60 m), which attests to the incomplete quarrying of a building stone (Fig. 5); a negative of another quarried stone was found alongside it.
The road segment unearthed in the excavation is a continuation of the rock-hewn road that was excavated in the past; it could not be dated. The road was cut into the bedrock from east to west, apparently leading from the kurkar ridge to a settlement located on the coast. The quarry beside the road is not surprising, as several quarries had been discovered in the vicinity in previous excavations.
