    Any way to create a road and use in a route?

    Just wondering if anyone has come up with a work-around for calculating a route for a map that needs to be updated. I'm working on calculating a route around a particular town and I've found that a few of the roads don't exist in MapPoint 2006. I know I can draw a line in to visually represent a road, but obviously MapPoint won't use the line that I draw to calculate a route. I'm just wondering if anyone has come up with any tricks to be able to have a route somehow use the drawing as a "local road". I'm using vb.net 2005 along with MapPoint 2006, so if I can do anything programmatically that would be great.
