I was fixing some crossing roads for MapRoulette when I encountered this highway: Spain Road Northeast http://osm.org/go/TyF1cnlvl-?m=&way=168657541 . It is mapped as 2 lines, one for each lane. And even that is not correct, as there are 3 lanes just before Cortaderia Place Northeast.

Both lines were also overlapping one another.

Is this caused by an import ? Is this standard mapping in the USA ? Is it OK to remove one of the lines and tag the remaining one with lanes=2 (or 3) ?

Looking at the history of the ways this seems simply to be a mapping error, the ways in question don't even have the same classification. As you write, the correct way to map this is to add the correct lane tags to both sides of the dual carrigage way, which is correct to map as two seperate ways.
