I think it gets a little less clear when you have a full-width lane. I'd 
personally tag 
http://maps.google.com/maps?aq=&sll=36.603066,-82.182705&sspn=0.001798,0.00515&ll=42.3365,-71.076994&spn=0.013181,0.041199&t=k&z=16&layer=c&cbll=42.336453,-71.076817&panoid=hPiB5OqB2NtKJtObPUZYag&cbp=12,24.8,,0,-1.64 
as lanes=2, since there are two continuous through lanes, but I know 
others would count at least the center left turn lane, so there's really 
no consensus here.
