Sometimes, highways or waterways get narrower for a brief period of time, such as "under" a long-removed bridge. They can also be narrow because of parked cars. It's useful, when reading a map, to know that this is coming. It's also a handy navigational aid.

How to Map

Add narrow=yes to the part of the way that gets narrower.

Rendering

Temporary narrowing of blue line in case of waterways
