Paved road navigation option by default for Google Maps driving directions

Hi I work at Baker Creek Heirloom Seed Company and we get a bunch of visitors each day. Unfortunately a majority of our patrons come to us via dirt roads that surround our company. There is one paved road that is preferable to take over all other dirt roads coming in to us. I've included the paved road route below:
 
 
I think it would be really cool if a company like ours could log into our Google business page and mark the prefered route to take. This way people could take paved roads and avoid washed out, rough, dangerous, or impassable roads.
 
Thanks for reading this idea :)

Hey Annon,

I would suggest you post this over at the MapMaker forum and hopefully
someone there can help fix some of the roads so Google knows which is
preferable.

Oh dear. Well what I would ask the MapMaker people is if the roads are
currently marked as gravel or dirt etc. If this level of detail isn't
currently on get roads it might be why Google isn't avoiding them. Let me
know if they aren't able to help. I can confirm there is nothing in GMB
that can help this.
