    Unfortunately, the answer is no. Roads aren't entities that you can select on the map.



    You can of course set the start and end point of a road and create a highlighted route. Once you have a route, you can do interesting things like selecting it and performing a "Find Nearby Places" search to find and display any pushpins or points of interest that are within a specified distance from the road.



    You can write code to store and manage multiple routes - this may be the solution for your requirements.
