Fifty years ago, this was paved with two (thin) layers of asphalt. Since then, there has been no maintenance. The current surface is now a mix of large potholed patches of asphalt interspersed with large patches of dirt. How would I tag the surface type?

Hi Carnildo, some options to use; surface=asphalt with smoothness=intermediate surface=paved to make it less clear, with smoothness=rough if you want to adjust it to the mentioned potholes or intermediate as well. Like driving these roads it it’s a puzzle.

smoothness=rough is not an established tag. You may want to use one of the tags listed at https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:smoothness .
