I tried searching for this and wasn't having much luck finding answers here or examples elsewhere.

How do we handle "merge lanes" where a lane is ending so you much merge over?

Here is an example on little road going north bound at fivay: https://www.openstreetmap.org/edit#map=19/28.33999/-82.66584

It turns out I want to use turn:lanes = merge_to_right for my use case.

You need to tag all the lanes individually. For your three lane one-way road it would be turn:lanes=merge_to_right|none|none or shorter turn:lanes=merge_to_right||. But I see you have done it already in that way.

To be clear, you should use turn:lanes=merge_to_right|none|none.

If the lane configuration is complicated, further consider https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Relation:connectivity.

Not at all. We count the lanes from left to right. So it needs to be turn:lanes=merge_to_right|none|none.

@TZorn Typo at the wrong side. Obviously =merge_to_right on the rightmost doesn't make sense.
