If it's that recent then finding the changeset will probably be easiest
through osmcha.org filtered by your username and a rough bounding box.

Alternately as you may know a time and narrow bounding box where it
definitely existed you might be able to pick the deleted way from and
Overpass Turbo query along these lines:
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Overpass_API/Overpass_API_by_Example#OSM_data_at_a_certain_date
It may be best to run this from within JOSM as the web interface warns that
there's quite a bit of data and can be awkward about selecting items that
are "under" other areas.

Once you have a changeset or way ID you can use either JOSM's reverter
plugin or its undelete plugin to resurrect the relevant item. With the
reverter plugin it is usually possible to selectively upload specific
deleted ways rather than the whole changeset with the usual upload
selection tool. For a web based tool I think level 0 can be used to restore
old versions, but I've never used it in anger as I tend to prefer launching
a GUI.
