Well, obviously, if they were Roman roads, they were built by the Romans. But the army built most of them especially in the provinces, because the primary purpose for good roads was to move troops and imperial messengers quickly. Civilians were secondary users.

They used a primitive form of a theodolite: At point A they could see where they had to go towards point B. To get to the next point, C, they send a man as far as they can see & line A B & C up in a straight line, so far so good. Then using a sighting device with 4 weighted strings line up along the line of ABC they send a man in a straight line to point D, again as far as they can see..... and so on. Occaisionally there would be bends, angles, to change direction, but the principal remains the same throughout the length of the road to be built.

Actually, Roman roads were both an expansion of existing roads (which happened to exist) and a creation of new routes initiated by Roman consuls or censors.
