Highway under construction, but possible for pedestrians

If a highway includes a cycleway (lane or track) or an footway, it should be possible to track, if the construction closes the highway only for cars or also for pedestrians and/or bycicles. Otherwise a routing algorithm would calculate an alternative route also for pedestrians/cyclists although it wouldn't be necessary.--Iknopf 12:58, 4 August 2010 (BST)

How about access=no + foot=yes + bicycle=yes? --Rickmastfan67 11:55, 10 September 2010 (BST)

Start date?

How would I tag the date at which construction begins? For maintenance work on roads etc. there usually is an advance notice about the exact dates between which the road will be closed. It would be useful to include this information, both so that people planning routes ahead of time will be warned and that editors can enter such information in advance without having the object in question being rendered as blocked now. --Silanea 19:00, 21 April 2011 (BST)

Construction sites that aren't roads

How would you tag that? Like a buiding or park that is being built, there are trucks there and equipment and such? --Marion Barry (talk) 15:33, 28 February 2016 (UTC)

A building: building=construction. A park (analogous to highways): leisure=construction + construction=park. --Aseerel4c26 (talk) 21:54, 12 March 2016 (UTC)
Please don't use the key=construction + construction=value approach for anything except highways and railways. It's a special case that exists for historic reasons, but would cause problems elsewhere. It's preferable to use the Lifecycle prefix, e.g. construction:leisure=park. A tag that's useful for construction sites in general is landuse=construction. --Tordanik 14:24, 14 March 2016 (UTC)
Yes, thanks, makes sense, since the special value "construction" would need a special handling. --Aseerel4c26 (talk) 20:09, 14 March 2016 (UTC)
please check my recent page edit. compare with taginfo. --Aseerel4c26 (talk) 20:19, 14 March 2016 (UTC)

On Relation?

This change brought onRelation=yes. What relation type might fit here? Highway, railway, building and landuse are all ways or areas and multipolygon is no relation by definition. I changed it back.--Jojo4u (talk) 09:43, 22 May 2016 (UTC)
