    I think an easy way would be to alter the sprite id's of the improvements you wish to change to the id's of the ones you wish to use. But you will not be able to readily distinguish between an advanced type improvement and one yet to be upgraded, just from looking anyways. And in a big civ it could get annoying having to click every tile to remember which you'd upgraded. Anyways...if that's what you're after dude, I think changin the sprite id's is simple enough.
    Live EVERY day like it's the best day of your life, and it will be.

      Here is a threat that already deals with the TilesetIndex in the tileimp.txt:

      The TilesetIndex will display the finished tile improvement on the map.
      The ConstructionTiles will display a not finished tile improvement on the.
      TilesetIndex and ConstructionTiles use the same numbers.
      Actually there are the ConstructionTiles but only the middle one is used. By the way it is no problem to distinguish between an advanced type improvement and one yet to be upgraded, because you can build an advance tileimprovement on a yet to be upgratded tileimprovement. But Fuzzball is also correct, because it is boring to have it in the mind which tile improvement must be upgraded and to see no different between the two types of tile improvements.
