The importance and scale of the find is being assessed, a spokesman for Northumberland National Park said.
Discussions will then take place on how best to preserve it.
Chris Jones, historic environment officer for the park, said: "The discovery of new remains is always a great thrill for any archaeologist. With every day that passes, we will know more."
The road runs north-west to south-east and appears to be overlain by the B6318 Military Road.
The Military Road was constructed in the 1750s as General Wade's men fought Jacobite rebels.
