When this is done in the USA, the usual case seems to be an entry
restriction on one end of the street.
Why would anything more complicated than an entry restriction be
required in OSM?
Typically it is a sign reading "Do not enter" with a sub-shield that
may read "Except bikes and buses".

A person leaving a driveway halfway along the street is free to choose
either direction.
A cyclist must be aware it's a street with two way traffic, even if
the motorized volume is lower than other similar streets.
