you could use lanes=1 on the narrow parts. "narrowness" is a very
relative concept and I wouldn't encourage you to use it, IMHO it is
better to use width (or est_width) also with rough estimates  it will
still be more useful.

split the way and put a short highway=steps, step_count=1

is this an obstacle, or is it simply another type of bridge
construction? If it is an obstacle the tagging should line out in what
the obstacle consists (smoothness, width, maxweight, ...)

In general the change to "obstacle" as key seems consistent with what
you want to express. I would refrain from narrowness and water, as
there are already other ways to express them.
