Well, it's a slow and messy process, but since
you have access to each side of the drive and
some depth, you can "drill" a hole with some PVC
pipe and leave the pipe in place for use as a conduit.
What's needed is a nozzle of some kind at the
"drill" end of the pipe, and a garden hose connection
at the other. The nozzle could be a PVC pipe cap
with some small holes drilled in the end.
Water pressure will wash away the soil ahead of
the nozzle. Use stiff PVC sections with fittings that can be
screwed together. Add more sections as
you work the pipe under the drive. If you run into
a rock, you're "done"! Try another location.
