Are you referring to the circle around each of the test sites? If so, those aren't roads. Each underground nuke test vaporizes rock and everything else in a sphere around the bomb. Rock and dirt above the hole then caves in, leaving a funnel shaped depression at the surface. A fence is normally built around this depression to keep anyone from accidentally entering it. Tumbleweeds and such get caught by the fence, causing vegetation to grow along it. Go real low in Google Earth and then tilt. You can clearly see it that way.
