Given that the vast majority of US freeway miles nationally are open to
bicycles and pedestrians, I strongly recommend *always *explicitly
tagging foot=* and bicycle=* when highway=motorway in the US. Sometimes
even in major cities the infrastructure is so bad that the freeway is the
fastest, safest and easiest option, hence spending 15 years as a freeway
cyclist in metro Portland.
