[Tagging] Traffic Lights, but only for one direction on a highway that isn't divided

So does anybody have any suggestions on how to deal with something like this?  Here's my example:
Here in Pittsburgh, when you're coming off I-579 going towards the South Hills across the Liberty Bridge, you encounter two sets of traffic lights (one before you get onto the bridge, and one on the bridge) because of two ramps that dump traffic onto it.  The traffic lights are for outbound traffic only, as inbound (to Downtown Pittsburgh) traffic don't have to deal with them.  Here are the locations of both sets: http://www.openstreetmap.org/browse/node/684666723 & http://www.openstreetmap.org/browse/node/684666821.
I don't think highway:forward=traffic_signals would work here since it's only placed on the node and not the way.  But I'm open for some suggestions.  Most of the time, the roads would be already divided and this problem wouldn't exist.  Gotta love Pittsburgh with several quarks when it come to traffic, haha.
