Close, by the looks of it, although the longest road starts a little bit north of the 84, and goes all the way to the west coast, whereas the 84 looks like it terminates in Pennsylvania somewhere

Hm. I'd've guessed 90 as well. I thought it went from Florida to Arizona. Is it 20? I know that goes from NE to at least Chicago but not sure if it keeps going after there.

Yay!  Finky has it. 

"As the "0" in its route number implies, US 20 is a coast-to-coast route. Spanning 3,365 miles (5,415 km), it is the longest road in the United States,[2] and the route sparsely parallels Interstate 90 (I-90)"

 

Take it away, Mr Bug!

It doesn't exist?

I wandered off, having forgotten I'd asked a question. Jen's close-ish so I'm inflicti...awarding her the win.

Interstate 45 in Texas is one of the few intrastate interstates (Hawaii has another) and is the only one ending in 0 or 5. 0 means a coast-to-coast, which it is not, and 5 means a major long distance travel corridor, which it is not.
