OK, I have done something similar now, just that I used google calculated
routes as a reference. Those routes that are more than 5% longer either in
distance or time are flagged as red, others are green.

This isn't perfect, but at least it gives a good first indication of which
routes are broken and hopefully as people continue fixing the interstate
system more and more routes will turn green.
