I recently added a new road to OSM. It is a service road that runs atop a dike to a dam on the Mississippi River near Reno, Minnesota, USA. The number of the feature is #825941396. My question is, why is there a line of gray dashes running down the center of the road? The OSM key for a service road is pure white without a line of gray dashes running down its center. Thanks for your help. Renner Anderson

This is because of your "access=no" setting, intended to warn the map user that this road might not be available to all modes of transport. (This answer is based on the openstreetmap-carto version that was live in July 2020 - if you read this later, things may have changed.)

You don't really need the access=no causing this here. Other tags quite sufficiently defined it already.
