I found one in Dallas, kinda: https://www.google.com/maps/dir/32.7343225,-96.710959/Unnamed+Road,+Richardson,+TX+75081/@32.8782302,-96.6856963,12z/data=!4m16!4m15!1m5!3m4!1m2!1d-96.5989576!2d32.7437152!3s0x864ea53f5a296a53:0xe225b2787ac51622!1m5!1m1!1s0x864c1eff98bfb919:0x6c4b843e83bd422c!2m2!1d-96.7043288!2d32.9455548!2m1!1b1!3e0

25.3 miles. Starts as Lake June Rd in Pleasant Grove (neighborhood of Dallas), becomes Belt Line Rd in Balch Springs and passes through Sunnyvale, Mesquite and Garland before going down to 4 lanes in Richardson.

Kingston Road in Toronto may be a contender.

Just remembered that US 441 / SR 7 has a break with just four lanes from FL 806 to 804. That makes it 37 miles from FL 826, and not the 51 miles I'd mentioned up-thread.

8 Mile Rd., on the northern border of Detroit, is a divided surface road that is 3 or more lanes each way from Grand River Ave. to the west to I-94 to the east, a distance of 20.7 miles.
We're getting there
Woodward Ave from Detroit to Pontiac is roughly 25 miles.  I think all of it is at least 6 lanes - some areas 8 or even 10.

Edit: Then I read the posts about Telegraph Rd.
