Do we count beltways? If we do, MKAD around Moscow, Russia is 2x5 at it's full length (108 km). The eastern part of Sankt-Peterburg beltway has 2x4 lanes at 51,3 km:



The longest not-beltway section of 2x4 freeway is at M-2 just outside Moscow:

2x4 lanes (or more) in Portugal:

Lisboa:
A5 Lisboa-Cascais = 3,5km of multi lanes (not the full lenght is any direction , 3100m one way , 3000m in the other so roughly 2600m 2x4 ?)
IP7 = 700m ???
2ª circular = 900m + 450m + 1100m ???
CRIL = 5km + 2km = 7km

Porto:
VCI = 400m + 500m + 400m + 700m + 3800m
A1 = 7km

and other few small sections ... very few 2x4(or more) sections here ... usually building a second nearby highway is the preferred solution when the 1st 2x3 one is saturated.

In Sweden it seems to be a 2,6km stretch (which is the only 4x2 motorway in Sweden) along Essingeleden in Stockholm:

Nearby motorways are often used in Italy, but just to subdivide the local traffic from long distance one

Here you can see, for istance, the 2X2 lanes Modena bypass running close to A1 4X2 lanes Modena-Bologna stretch

I believe the longest 8-lane road in Norway is a 3 or 4 km of road on E6 north of OSlo

As you stated though, it's actually two interstates, I-94 and I-294 - but if you're driving this route, it acts as one through road - it just happens to change names as it goes through Chicago.
My brother lives right off I-94 in Pleasant Prairie, and I was under the impression that the work on that stretch was just to rebuild the interstate and rework the configuration with the frontage roads. I'll have to check it out next time I'm up there soon.

No, it's a $1.9 billion complete rebuild of the road and interchanges, along with widening around 40 miles of road from 6 to 8 lanes.

The stretch between Hundinge and Greve Syd on Köge Bugt Motorvejen in southern Copenhagen is about 5km long. It is 2x4 for the most part and 2x5 for little over 2km-- the only 2x5 motorway in Nordic Europe.

Some revival of this topic:
Acording to Google Maps the longest 2x4 section in China is around 250 km (~155 mi) long expressway between Shanghai and Nanjing:

I made a map. It's disputable though

The longest section of at least 2x4 by road number in South Africa is the 78 km section of the N1 between exits 67 and 145 ie from the the N12 south of Johannesburg to the N4 east of Pretoria. However, the route is formed by three freeways (Johannesburg Western Bypass, Ben Schoeman Highway and Danie Joubert Freeway) so one has to turn off twice to follow the N1.

There plenty of other examples, but the M25 south western side has 36 miles (58km) of 4+4 lanes, with some bits going up to 6+6 near Heathrow...
