I wouldn't worry about the roots being invasive. This article will explain: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/trees/crepe-myrtle/crepe-myrtle-root-system.htm

You will be limited by the size of the shrub you choose. Many will get to between 5 and 10 feet wide. If you are planting at least 10 feet away, then you can be sure that it will not obstruct the road.
