I started a project in Revit / Bldg Dsgn Suite 2014,  created a site drawing around the building that I had drawn... then created a subregion as a method of defining a driveway which I filled with concrete as a material. Then I placed topo points all around the whole site to reflect the grades of the actual building site, and so the subregion which is the concrete road now follows the contours of the site plan.  So when I create a 3D view which shows the contour lines they are present on the driveway area as well. Is there a way to turn them off or make them hidden in the just subregion so the driveway appears smooth with no lines showing?  

( Please be kind...I have only been at this for a few weeks )

If you create a 'split surface' instead of 'subregion' you will gain independant control over the topo points on that driveway area as apposed to if the area is a subregion. This would at least give you better control so you could 'smoth it out' and not effect the rest of the yard. The split surface can be near the edge of the topo or it can be an island and surrounded by the remaining topo surface.
