In the same way, a roadway only wide enough for one vehicle at a time is a "one-lane road".  The bridge or road is visibly only one lane wide; painting lane markings on it to point out its narrowness would be redundant.

is 'Single Track Road'. 

You will sometimes see signs saying "Single Track Road with Passing
Places", a useful page with sign examples is here
