They've re-rendered and now show:
Three- (but not four-?) character county roads
Hawaii and Rhode Island correctly

Still needs fixing:
'Banners' on county roads (e.g. CR 35 Alternate, CR 50 Old)
C-* is a county road (in Ohio at least; it may be used for state 
highways in Colorado)

I can't wait for April Fools!
