Columbia Parkway (US-50) in Cincinnati was 5 (very narrow) lanes wide and used to have a center reversible lane.  Then they changed it to 3 inbound, 2 outbound, probably 20+  years ago.  More recently, parts of it have been reduced to 4 lanes, two in each direction.

When I saw the thread title, I thought of Bardstown Road in Louisville, KY, which I remember having reversible lanes when we visited in March 2010, but I believe those have since been removed. Is that the sort of thing you had in mind?

Yes, those got removed sometime around 2015 I think.

Not that far back. They were disabled at the beginning of the pandemic. Restriping took place in November 2020.

Multiple roads in Cleveland had reversible lanes up through the start of the 21st century. (Euclid, Chester, & Carnegie, among others, just on the east side alone)
