Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

A road in my neighborhood was planned but never built. Now it is part of people's yards and will never be built. I can't figure out how to delete it I opened the data layer but see no delete option.

It is http://www.openstreetmap.org/edit?lat=41.579366&lon=-71.438544&zoom=18 and the name is Drift Way.

  1. Cick on the road (the way) to select it
  2. Press Shift+Delete or click on the Dustbin button (small toolbox)
  3. Save and add a comment

Click on it to highlight it, then click on the "trash can" icon in the lower right section. Click "save" in the upper left.
