Consider using Assessor's (TN) maps when Google Earth is behind recent construction.  Attached file is an overlay of an Assessors map on a GE screenshot to tell where the street is. This one was quite close with a wall at one end and cul de sac at the other end of an out and back course.  QR stands for Quaker Run Drive on the map.

Hey, Oscar. Nice suggestion for working in new developments. Their fees don't seem high.

As important is to remember to throw away any concept of riding over curbs on unfinished roads. I learned the hard way that developers tend to install the road curbs long before the final pavement is brought up to the level of the curb bottoms. This leaves a couple of inches or more of height between the curb and the road surface. I foolishly neglected to pay attention to this height difference when measuring on such roads on two different occasions. I tried to take the tangent across such curbs at a shallow angle. Went over the bars and broke thumbs and ribs.
