superelevated gutter

i have a superelevated road.

i have a road with a arc that curves to the left so, the gutter on the right is sloping towards the crown (positive slope.) i would like the gutter to slope away from the crown (negative slope.) how do i get the gutter to do this? i know it may sound weird to some, but i do need this to happen.

 

image attached, red arrow is what i don't need, cyan line is what i do need. 

 

thanks all,

You can lock in the gutter slope and ignore the lane slope.

Isn't there a setting to have this slope match the road slope?  I seem to remember being able to turn that off.  Then you can set your own slope or set it by the height differential you need.

i tried messing with the "parameter editor" from the cross-section viewer of the particular stations i need it changed on but, it doesnt change the slope of the gutter. i can physically change the number in the column, but the slope of my gutter isnt changing. i am using the urbancurbguttergeneral sub.

I really feel the 'Gutter Slope' entry should be faded out to gray when the slope method is ignoring it.  Then it would force you to change the method, avoiding a lot of confusion.
