I would recommend drawing a separate “way” for the highway. I imagine that
the route taken by vehicles or people walking is a few meters off of the
center of the waterway, and perhaps a little straighter. If you are
coarsest tracing the waterway and road, then the two ways might share most
of their nodes.
