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

I'm trying to get a residential road using the reversegeocoding with nominatim. This is what I have constructed


but the road returned is not residential, instead it's classified as "highway:track" how can I get the closest residential road when given gps coordinates?

Nominatim can't do it. It understands a couple of special phrases https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Nominatim/Special_Phrases for points-of-interest type searches, but not road types. https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Overpass_API might work for your use case.
