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

in Salem, NY I inserted a dirt road at Cary Hill Sculpture Park that I later realized was outdated and inaccurate, but the map isn't updating my deletion. Any thoughts?

It may take a day or so disappear. Map layers are not updated immediately. If it does not go soon, paste a link and other mappers can have a look.EDIT I looked at history in that area https://www.openstreetmap.org/changeset/40096199#map=17/43.17396/-73.33627 and the deletion as gone from the data but does show at zoom 14 still,( it is only an hour or so since your work ) The various map tiles are updated so these must be the last to get updated. Ctrl F5 sometimes clears old cached data from some PCs.

In addition to Andy's suggestion another way to check is to view the area on the map and then open the editing option. The editor will show what is actually on the database after your original edit. Does the 'deleted' road still show in the editor? No - everything is fine - tiles are just taking a while to update. Yes - probably need to redo your deletion.
