As many of you may have heard, there has been some severe flooding in the
US state of Colorado.  Many roads are washed out.  They are not just
closed, they are gone.  Some of these roads will take months to get to a
point where the public is allowed to use them, and years before they are
completely rebuilt[1].  How should such roads be tagged / mapped?

[1] The Big Thompson Flood of 1976 destroyed US 34 through the canyon.
Through heroic effort a temporary road was open to the public 86 days
later.  Complete reconstruction was not completed for almost four years.
