Not intimately knowledgeable here, but aware. I recall there was
widespread problem with one-way streets because the import was
inconsistent in one-way polarity. Those are i hope mostly fixed by
now. I don't recall discussion of lanes, though.

My own street is similar, one-way and we have 1 travel lane plus both
side parking in reality and it's coded as lanes = 2.

IDK how or why.

As to the Bulk import , at the time, MASSGIS had better data than
TIGER so that was the basis in MASS. I'm cc'ing a couple folk who
might remember if lanes was odd in MASS GIS.
But if we're lucky someone from MASSGIS will speak up.
