A more upright position with road bars can be achieved by changing the stem. Get a stem with a greater angle (say 0° or +10° instead of the typical -17°) and/or get a stem with a longer quill. Either will allow you to raise the bars.
The Profile H2O stem is a 0° stem with a long quill and will allow a rather high bar position. Rivendell Bicycle Works offers a Nitto stem that is -17° but has a very long quill and will also allow for a high bar setting.
