mystery wetness

so many ways to go with that title...

So there's this section of road that's nearly always wet. It's not in shade nor is there some errant fire hydrant depositing the dampness. It must be an odd microclimate and I can't work out why it is what it is. So ponder that one.

Underground creek or spring? (We have a mostly underground creek in my neighborhood. It coats the street in front of my house... and then it freezes. Makes for fun driving.)

I think it's a tasty stretch of road that is being licked by nocturnal rodents. It could happen.

Would you describe it as merely damp? Or is M*O*I*S*T?

Nocturnal rodents. Excellent hypothesis.
