To make it easier, go to preferences, and look for tag presets. Activate
"one click features" or something named similar to that (sorry, afk so
can't give you step by step guide on this bit).

Once done, in the main josm screen, right click on the toolbar and edit it
to add the one click bridge option. From now on just split the road, select
the split piece and click the button and the tags for bridges that way.

I have imagery layers, addressing plugins, often used tags etc all on the
toolbar. Makes it much quicker rather than trying to remember tags or
search through menus
