Default Reverse slope driveway

Anyone have experience with reverse slope driveways?

We purchased a home with one and there the drain at the bottom of the driveway is done. It drains fine in the summer but in the winter, after the first freeze and thaw, it becomes next to useless.

We will need to repave the driveway some point and getting a new drain installed will likely be done at the same time.

Anyone have recommendations for a company in Ottawa to do that kind of work?
