I've scoured the forums and cannot find the answer to this: How do I add a dedicated turn lane to a roadway? TIGER mapped the major roadway, and I have updated it to say lanes=2; however, there are various points at which a 3rd lane appears - and it is dedicated to a left or right turn at the next intersection. How do I link these into the roadways and map them properly?

Find a junction of a similar type that as been mapped already, then open your editor and inspect what they have done.Then exit without saving. To add a lane or slip road is the same procedure of creating a node and drawing a way from that point. ask again if not sure. The editing videos are very good have a look at those too.

There are multiple proposals on this on wiki. I would suggest to read the proposals on wiki, choose one, help it get better (approved) and use it. Apparently there is no clear straightforward way to do this.
I will not be any more specific, since I have not decided for any of them yet.

The lane proposals (there might be more):
