Sure.  So if we actually know that, the phsyical condition tags (or
having a gap where it's not a road) are appropriate.  And roads without
that sign may not be any diffferent in condition.  If you're arguing
that a "this road may not be functional sign" should get


instead of a road  that merely has a connecticut-style disclaimer


then that seems fine.
