   I'd say you did a good job - everything looks to be connected.  Per 
latest standards: here is an update for the county without tiger: tags 
and with like-named ways already combined.  (We're updating procedures 
as we go).


   Although roads will be split later as more details are surveyed 
(speed limits, bus routes, etc), multiple segments of the same street 
can be (c)ombined in JOSM to make future edits easier.

  One thing I see is that part of McDevitt Drive is named just 
'McDevitt'.   I frequently see this in TIGER data, and I'm guessing both 
of those would be McDevitt Drive.

  The tiger:reviewed=no tag usage varies with each person, but generally 
anything validated by a human against local knowledge or an aerial image 
doesn't need the tiger:reviewed tag at all.
