if it is still a motorway, it is a motorway. reduce the lanes and the maxspeed, adjust the alignment of the motorway to be centered on the open lanes and mark construction areas beside the road (usually a lot bigger than just a lane). 

Then draw a way down the blocked  lane(s) and/or new lanes under construction and tag them as highway=construction + construction=motorway. 

it will show that, yes, the freeway is open (existing motorway with the open lanes), and yes, part of the freeway is under construction visually, but not affect routing. 

Perhaps there is a tag to put on the open section to discourage use or outing or something.
