I also started working on I-20, from the Georgia border.  (I had qualms
about just going with the first one Wikipedia listed on their "numbered
routes in South Carolina" page...)  I spent a bunch of time reconstructing
the roads that cross it, though; for a lot of them, all the
decliner/non-responder did was split them to make bridges, which ends with
the road still on one side of the Interstate and a line of nodes on the
other side, so it's not too hard to recreate the roads.

IMHO, interstate connectivity is most important, but I figure reconnecting
roads that were split to cross the interstate will get decent other chunks
of the road network functional, too.

I hit a conflict with someone, too, but I think I correctly integrated
both sets of changes.  It helped that the other person had been working on
a different area of the relation, and neither of us had drastically
reordered the relation members.

I'm not sure.  Maybe listing the Interstates (and perhaps US Highways) on
the wiki and letting people claim them one by one?
