Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

I wish to extract street information using OSM into a JSON file. In this information is it possible to obtain the width of each street? If now how to achieve this task. your help is greatly appreciated.

While in some cases there is explicit width information in OSM it is rather rare and you would need to estimate the width from other tags (street classification, lanes etc). Further you will need to consider how to handle dual carriageways and similar. This is all doable but will require some development work.
