So only TIGER CFCC A2* were mapped to highway=primary in the import?
I guess that makes sense -- TIGER has a clear distinction between
primary (A2), secondary (A3) and local roads (A4). But in that
classification, where do the tertiary and trunk roads come in?
I can't find the original TIGER files that the import was sourced
from, but would that show that there are no A2 class roads in Fresno?
