Also I've considered the "highway and above" rule as a possibility, but my desired route is primarily Highway and Freeway, except for the endpoints and one short section in the middle where I connect from the Major Highway to the Freeway on a Minor Highway and a Service Road/Ramp. (...)

Sometimes we've heard support say that Primary is the same as Street. Other times that it is different and will be used on longer trips. But I am pretty sure that I only recall Service Road being compared to Street. A Service Road is used to get to a specific business or residence. It isn't used to pass through on your way to somewhere else.

I've mentioned it because I see on the forums that a primary is a local street, as you call it, but there is a page on the wiki that mentions primaries as potential candidates for long routes. I'm personally assuming the wiki is wrong.
