   For "City block areas" and subdivisions, this is certainly one of the 
easiest ways: remove, then bring those areas in from TIGER 2011 and 
connect the intersections.

   This is not advisable for more major roads, which may already have 
relations, speed limits, lane count and other attributes already added.
