For what it's worth, I did something similar here in Kansas. The
Department of Transportation didn't have any obvious notices about
copyright on the website so I sent them an email and asked. They
replied and said that all the maps published on their website are
public domain. So I added exit numbers along I-70 and I-35 from the
general transportation map.

As I have traveled along them since then I have verified and added
name=* tags (although I guess that is about to get changed to exit_to)
