The Lincoln Highway is one possible answer, but the practice of naming highways has been discouraged in favor of numbering them.

The Lincoln Highway was begun in about 1912-1913 as the first hard-surface road to lead from coast to coast (New York City to San Francisco) and was about 3300 miles long, but had numerous realignments over the years.

Except for Route 1 in NY/NJ, the eastern 2/3 of the Lincoln Highway route are part, more or less, of the present US 30. In the western states, the route is now part of US 530, 40, 50 and then 40, again, into San Francisco.

The newer Interstate 80 also runs along the same general route, but less so than US routes named above.

The US Routes were numbered in multiples of ten, from U.S. 10 across the north to U.S. 90 across the south. To avoid confusion when the similarly numbered Interstate highways were built, the numbers were reversed (ie: Interstate 10 is in the south).
