I recently added "area roads" to downtown Durham, NC. I made the surface of the roads visible on Openstreetmap. I was wondering if their is any specific way to map road areas. I currently map them as "area = highway" and "highway = service". Feel free to check it out!

All three links lead to a place in Openstreetmap where I mapped roads as areas.
I anyone else mapped roads as areas, please reply a link to the location!
