Driveway drain grating


I have a gravel driveway and at one point a heavy stream of water crosses it when it rains hard. I would like to put a steel or iron grating across the driveway at this spot. Traffic is typically cars and standard pickup trucks. Any suggestions on what I should use here?

Thanks

You should have a subsurface poured concrete channel on which the grate itself rests and which also serves as a collector for the water. There must be an outlet from one end of this channel to carry the water someplace else.

Thanks for the reply. There is a semi-steep grade on one side of the driveway where the water drains naturally. Are there any prefabricated channels available?
