New Google Maps tool will allow you to draw, rename missing roads

Google said it is adding a new feature on Maps that will make it easier to add details from photos to reviews or even missing roads on the app. In a blogpost, Google said users can ’add missing roads by drawing lines, quickly rename roads, change road directionality, and realign or delete incorrect roads.’ Users will now be able to update if a road is closed with details like dates, reasons, etc.

If you're interested in contributing to better maps, I invite you to check out crowdsourced OSM/OpenStreetMap

Great way to get the public to do your updating for free.
