here is how much work is involved:

1) find the shape file that covers your area on the TIGER site:


you will need to figure out your state's FIPS code to figure out the
state files of interest.

2) install the JOSM plugin for loading shapefiles (i believe
that the opendata plug in does this, it's been a while since
i installed it.)

3) learn to manage the layers stuff well enough to move things
from one layer to another.
