Alright, I've just tagged them as normal traffic lights, but added a "note" tag with additional info for the future if ever needed.
"Traffic Lights only control traffic heading out of town to the South Side. There are no traffic lights inbound."

I'm pretty sure that the traffic signal tag as it currently exists is
more concerned with whether or not a signal is present, not whether or
not it is always lit, or faces all possible directions.  Hawthorne
Bridge's center span is a good example of a similar situation.

(also, this video of the bridge crossing makes me wonder...how do you
tag two bike lanes in the same direction?  And this guy must have
crossed after rush hour for traffic to be this light).
