County and city routes might be a tough nut to crack.  The two Tulsa City
Expressways use fairly generic (and in the old pre-carto rendering,
coincidentally approximated) official signage.

Gilcrease Expressway (G):
Tisdale Parkway (LL):

None of the county routes in Tulsa County are signed, though they are
painted on the pavement itself in Nowata County, and posted on the same
style sign as street names in Osage and Washington Counties, and there's
yet more that use standard MUTCD-style county shields, and at least one
that simply uses blue painted metal sheets with the numbers
spraypaint-stenciled on.  Probably suggest using the generic MUTCD shield
when the exact shield is unknown, and approximate it when it is known.  But
let's cross that bridge once the ball is rolling and the state level
systems and higher are rendering from relations...
