[Tagging] Road blocks?

A single barrier= node of your choice would generally block the way it’s dropped on. If the street/lanes are drawn with separate ways, you might need more nodes/a barrier= way.
Phil is right to point out there might be different conditions of passage, so adding the temporary footbridge would help pedestrian routing. 
Indeed merry Christmas to those celebrating.
