It is closed for repairs, so maybe highway=construction construction=primary
would be better? 

It seems that it will be more likely to be caught if forgotten, really old highway=construction
is far more suspicious that old access=no.

Old highway=construction would be caught for example by StreetComplete.

There is also https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:opening_date <https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:opening_date>
that allows to specify opening date - what makes possible to
run query detecting objects that are supposed to be open now.

Query example for London: http://overpass-turbo.eu/s/HEq <http://overpass-turbo.eu/s/HEq> (pan map
and press run to get results for other place).
