That can be a right pain, worth checking out ebay, there is often sets of components for sale.

When we lost one white road, we found a piece of craft wood at the craft store for a couple of dollars that was almost exactly the right size. We cut off a piece the right length and painted it white. Works perfectly!

If they had blue roads I'd be in business.

Just email Mayfair, they will send you a free replacement.

I made a complete additional set of components from craft store items. Of course, my settlements and cities don't look like the original, but the roads are a perfect match.

cry I would freak out for awhile, losing a piece like that.

Hopefully mayfair will ship you a replacement for free or a nominal fee.

Mayfair has yet to even acknowledge my existence after emailing them... I don't really feel like picking up a phone so maybe I should't blame them for not feeling like putting a little blue road in a envelope and mailing it to me or replying at all.

Keep an eye out for spare blue canal pieces from Aquädukt.

They are the same width/hight, or really darn close, but just a little longer. One could be easily cut down a smidge in length and be a perfect replacement. A little bit of blue paint on an end could be added if your that compulsive about it.

There is also one user claiming to have "all" parts for that game:

I'm assuming you already looked at the "Has Parts" listing for Catan, but if not:

Nice. It amazes me how much I don't know about BGG. The rabbit hole continues down and down.
