Because that would then be a ford rather than a culvert - you're
implying that at a certain point (the joining node) you've got your feet
on the road and in the stream?

That sounds (at least in English English) like some sort of bridge
(aqueduct) rather than a culvert - though this did come up the last time
that culverts were discussed on this list** - someone found an old
picture of a car going over a bridge over a culvert and thought that the
picture's title ("the culvert") referred to the bridge.
If you genuinely don't know how a road crosses a waterway then you can
of course just have the one crossing the other. QA sites will flag this
as an error (which is correct - it is) but if you don't have any
information about how to correct the error (is there a ford? bridge? is
there no bridge but the stream runs in a box culvert?) then to my mind
there's no problem leaving the "error" there so that someone who has
more information can correct it.
gets some hits. There were also a bunch of discussions around the time
was created - so have a look at the lists then.
