So, just for fun, I'm going through the area you pointed out and fixing some of the roads. I'm making some of those Unclassified instead of Tertiary because they go from nowhere to nowhere, but feel free to change them. 

I plan on making a road trip in a few weeks, and depending on timing and weather, I might make a detour through that area and capture a random sampling of those roads in Mapillary.
