No, but it comes close. It is the third-longest highway in the interstate system, according to the Federal Highway Administration, which lists these as the top five longest  interstate routes:

I-90        Seattle, Wa. to Boston, Ma.  3,020.54 miles

I-80        San Francisco, Ca. to Teaneck, N.J. 2,899.54 miles

I-40        Barstow, Ca. to Wilmington, N.C.  2,555.40 miles

I-10        Los Angeles, Ca. to Jacksonville, Fl. 2,460.34 miles

I-70        Cove Fort, Ut.  to Baltimore, Md. 2,153.13 miles
