We should be mapping to both conditions, If, on the ground, there's a 
sign stating its legality, then I think it should be added. The 
condition of the way shouldn't be the deciding factor, but it should be 
explained with further sub-tags. Blockages of ways are often just temporary.

I disagree with Andy Street's comment:
"If you can't traverse a right of way then it shouldn't have a highway tag."

As Chris Hill suggests contact your L.A. I've done it a few times & they 
did act on it, but only after a bit of difficulty explaining their own 
path reference numbers to them.
