This is all off the top of my head, but a ford will generally have
flowing water, and a floodway not (or be more slowly flowing).
A ford generally crosses a stream bed, whereas a floodway is the roadway
part of an area subject to general inundation when floodwaters back up.
Both can be much too deep to cross when it's wet.
