Oh, sure, don't hesitate to upgrade certain local roads to "primary street" if it makes sense to do so. That's pretty much a judgment call. Last I looked, Detroit is in pretty bad shape with respect to Primary Streets.

Detroit can't afford primary streets. :}

Lol. They can't afford to maintain them anyhow.

You may want to look at any of those that you're changing from Street to make sure they aren't county highways. I had to add the county highway alternate names to the ones in northern Michigan because they weren't on there as alternate road names from the import. I noticed you added them to the section of the roads around Cheboygan that I wasn't able to do yet, so you probably already noticed that. I'm not sure how they are in southern Michigan as I haven't looked down there yet.

And I definitely agree with using Primary Street on regular roads that have a more important use than normal streets. Any road that the majority of traffic would use to get from point A to point B could probably be labeled as a Primary Street without being incorrect. As long as point A and point B are not close to each other (eg. the majority of traffic from one block to the next would use the same route, but that doesn't make it a primary street). :) Roads labeled "County Road XXX" on the street sign probably would make sense as Primary Streets as well, though I am not sure that I've had any specific experience driving roads with that label, so I am not sure how accurate that is.

I'm in the region pretty much devoid of county highways. I'm having the opposite problem down here. Some of the "primary streets" as would seem to be depicted on the State website are not paved. Most of that information is helpful, but when I find gravel roads I just set them as gravel roads. Maybe it gets plowed a bit sooner than its neighboring gravel roads in the winter, but I'm still not gonna drive on gravel. There is value in sorting this stuff out.

Once we get the checkbox for unpaved, that will be easier to handle because you can label it as a primary street if that's what it is and still mark it as unpaved so people can avoid it if they prefer.

Some of the mile roads might even be considered unpaved minor highways! :lol:
