Interstate 278 New Jersey / New York

 

Riding on an elevated viaduct, Interstate 278 travels northeast along the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway (BQE) toward the Triborough Bridge in Brooklyn. A rare state-named Interstate 278 shield is posted under an overhead advance sign for Flushing Lane (Exit 30). Note the lack of shoulders on the freeway. Much of this expressway was built in sections between 1939 and 1960 (starting with Kosciuszko Bridge in 1939 and ending with a section near Brooklyn Navy Yard in 1960), thus predating much of the Interstate Highway System. Photo taken by Alex Nitzman and Carter Buchanan (08/09/04).

Routing

Interstate 278 enters all of New York City's boroughs: Staten Island, Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan, and Bronx. Interstate 278 connects to Manhattan because Wards Island, on which the Triboro Bridge is partially located, is part of the borough of Manhattan. Interstate 278, like Interstates 478, 678, and 878, does not meet its parent, Interstate 78.

An older, urban freeway, Interstate 278 offers excellent views of the Manhattan skyline. The freeway uses several bridges on its journey, including Goethals Bridge between New Jersey and Staten Island, the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge between Staten Island and Brooklyn, Kosciuszko Bridge between Brooklyn and Queens, and the Triboro Bridge between Queens, Manhattan and the Bronx. Interstate 278 also carries several different names, including the Staten Island Expressway, Gowanus Expressway, Brooklyn-Queens Expressway (BQE), and Bruckner Expressway.

Interstate 278's western terminus is at U.S. 1 and 9. Originally, Interstate 278 was proposed to continue west to join Interstate 78 and New Jersey 24, but that extension was never constructed and is no longer proposed. At its eastern end, Interstate 278 enters the massive Bruckner interchange to meet Interstates 95, 295, and 678 as well as the Hutchinson River Parkway. Unlike most Interstates, Interstate 278 carries a truck prohibition for a portion of its route; specifically, trucks must use the frontage roads parallel to the Grand Central Parkway section of Interstate 278.

Verrazano Narrows Bridge, which connects Staten Island with Brooklyn, opened to traffic on November 21, 1964; a second six-lane deck below the original deck was opened on June 28, 1969.1 Photo taken by Cesar Centano (08/22/08).

Highway Guides

Western Terminus - U.S. 1/9 - Linden, New Jersey
Perspective from Interstate 278 west
The last New York exit along westbound Interstate 278 is Exit 3, Western Avenue in Staten Island. The freeway will cross the Arthur Kill River via the Goethals Bridge, then descend into Elizabeth, New Jersey. Photo taken by AARoads (08/29/05).
Constructed between 1925 and 1928 and open to traffic in 1928, the Goethals Bridge carries Interstate 278 from Staten Island in New York City west into New Jersey. Current plans call for the bridge to be twinned, with the original bridge carrying westbound traffic and the new bridge carrying eastbound traffic. For more, visit Steve Anderson's Goethals Bridge page. Photo taken by AARoads (08/29/05).
After crossing the Goethals Bridge, westbound Interstate 278 prepares to meet Interstate 95/New Jersey Turnpike. After the turnpike interchange, Interstate 278 west continues briefly into Elizabeth and Linden, ending at U.S. 1-9 just west of Interstate 95. Photo taken by AARoads (08/29/05).
Interstate 278 crosses over Interstate 95/New Jersey Turnpike; the connecting ramp to Interstate 95 requires a loop ramp. The first New Jersey exit from westbound Interstate 278 is the connection to New Jersey 439/Bayway Avenue. To U.S. 1-9 north, exit here and use New Jersey 439 north. To U.S. 1-9 south, follow Interstate 278 to its end in Linden. Photo taken by AARoads (08/29/05).
Westbound Interstate 278 meets New Jersey 439/Bayway Avenue to U.S. 1-9 north. The next exit is Junction Interstate 95/New Jersey Turnpike. Connecting traffic to the turnpike should use the left two lanes; through traffic on Interstate 278 west to U.S. 1-9 south should use the right lane. Photo taken by AARoads (08/29/05).
Westbound Interstate 278 finally splits with Interstate 95/New Jersey Turnpike; the ramp will turn left and loop back to Interstate 95. A Welcome to New Jersey sign is posted alongside the signs for this major interchange. Through traffic on Interstate 278 is defaulted onto one lane through this interchange. Photo taken by AARoads (08/29/05).
Through traffic on Interstate 278 uses only one lane through the interchange with Interstate 95/New Jersey Turnpike. The offramp to New Jersey 439/Bayway Avenue is visible to the right (north). Photo taken by AARoads (08/29/05).
A new lane joins westbound Interstate 278/Union Freeway from the Interstate 95/New Jersey Turnpike interchange complex. The freeway again carries two westbound lanes. Photo taken by AARoads (08/29/05).
The short section of Interstate 278 (part of planned Union Freeway) between Interstate 95/New Jersey Turnpike and U.S. 1-9 is a relic, with a 50 mile per hour speed limit, wide grassy median, and older design standards. The eastbound and westbound carriageways separate from each other. Photos taken by AARoads (08/29/05).
A curve ahead will help bring Interstate 278 to its western end as the freeway approaches U.S. 1-9. The interchange between Interstate 278 and U.S. 1-9 has an extra wide median between the Interstate 278 travel lanes. This unused right-of-way was intended to facilitate the continuing westbound lanes of Interstate 278 as they traveled northward to a terminus at Interstate 78 near the city of Newark. Photo taken by AARoads (08/29/05).
This end/begin sign was installed with an erroneous New Jersey 1-9 shield, as it should show U.S. 1-9. Traffic will merge with the paired U.S. routes on Edgar Road southbound as they travel through Linden en route to Rahway. Photo taken by AARoads (08/29/05).
Now traveling south after the END/BEGIN sign, traffic for U.S. 1-9 south should use the left lane. A plant entrance is the next right exit. Photo taken by AARoads (08/29/05).
The final exit from Interstate 278 west is this plant entrance in Linden. There is a traffic signal at the end of the ramp, which also must cross U.S. 1-9. Photo taken by AARoads (08/29/05).
A zero milepost is placed near the gore point for the plant entrance. This marks the end of Interstate 278 west. Incoming traffic from U.S. 1-9 south can be seen to the right. Photo taken by AARoads (08/29/05).
Traffic from Interstate 278 west merges onto U.S. 1-9 south after this traffic signal. Photo taken by AARoads (08/29/05).
Perspective from U.S. 1-9 north
Northbound U.S. 1-9 prepare to split with Interstate 278. The nascent freeway begins its eastward trek to the New Jersey Turnpike/Interstate 95 and the Goethals Bridge into Staten Island, New York. The current sign is reflective, but an older button copy sign was here as recently as 2000. The empty brackets to the left were to have supported the Interstate 278 westbound sign panel. Since Interstate 278 never met its parent, the bracket sat unused. Photos taken by AARoads (08/29/05) and Alex Nitzman (04/10/00).
Northbound U.S. 1 and 9 meet Interstate 278 east. The left three lanes continue north on U.S. 1-9, while the right two lanes connect to Interstate 278 east. Photo taken by AARoads (08/29/05).
Interstate 278 eastbound begins at this ramp as U.S. 1 and 9 continue northward into Elizabeth. Note the New Jersey Turnpike trailblazer and the Zero Milepost, which signifies the beginning of eastbound Interstate 278. Slightly more than one mile separate this interchange with the New Jersey Turnpike Exit 13 via Interstate 278. Photo taken by AARoads (08/29/05).
Perspective from Interstate 278 east
The only exit on Interstate 278 between U.S. 1-9 and Interstate 95/New Jersey Turnpike is the connection to Elizabeth and Linden. After this exit, traffic must pay a toll to connect to Interstate 95 or the Goethals Bridge to Staten Island. Photo taken by AARoads (08/29/05).
A roadside sign for the junction with Interstate 95/New Jersey Turnpike is posted on eastbound Interstate 278. Photo taken by AARoads (08/29/05).
Eastbound Interstate 278/Union Freeway meets Brunswick Avenue at this interchange (signed as Elizabeth and Linden). The second ramp connects to Interstate 95/New Jersey Turnpike, and through traffic connect onto the Goethals Bridge en route to Staten Island. Photo taken by AARoads (08/29/05).
Shortly thereafter, traffic splits: the left two lanes continue east on Interstate 278 to the Goethals Bridge, while the right lane connects to Interstate 95/New Jersey Turnpike. These remnant button copy, non reflective signs are increasingly rare in the Garden State. Photo taken by AARoads (08/29/05).
The connection to Interstate 95/New Jersey Turnpike splits into northbound for Newark and the George Washington Bridge and southbound to Trenton and Philadelphia. Photo taken by AARoads (08/29/05).
Perspective from Interstate 95/New Jersey Turnpike north
The first advance signage for Interstate 278 (Exit 13) is this sign on northbound Interstate 95/New Jersey Turnpike, posted for traffic in both the express and local lanes. Photos taken by Alex Nitzman/Carter Buchanan (08/09/04) and AARoads (08/29/05).
This is the one-mile advance sign for Interstate 278 as seen from both the express and local lanes of northbound Interstate 95/New Jersey Turnpike. Photos taken by Alex Nitzman/Carter Buchanan (08/09/04) and AARoads (08/29/05).
Use Interstate 278 east (via Exit 13) for the Goethals Bridge, Verrazano Narrows Bridge, and New York City. Use Interstate 278 west (via Exit 13) to Elizabeth and Junction U.S. 1-9. This sign is posted in the local lanes. Photo taken by AARoads (08/29/05).
The ramp from the northbound local lanes of Interstate 95/New Jersey Turnpike will connect to Exit 13/Junction Interstate 278 east (via Exit 13 to the Goethals Bridge and west to Elizabeth) first. A separate ramp from the express lanes is also provided (see below). Photo taken by AARoads (08/29/05).
Northbound Interstate 95/New Jersey Turnpike (local lanes) reaches Exit 13, Junction Interstate 278. Photo taken by AARoads (08/29/05).
Back in the express lanes, a separate exit ramp connects to Interstate 278 from northbound Interstate 95/New Jersey Turnpike. Photo taken by Alex Nitzman/Carter Buchanan (08/09/04).
Northbound Interstate 95/New Jersey Turnpike (express lanes) reaches Exit 13, Junction Interstate 278 east to the Goethals Bridge and west to Elizabeth. Photo taken by Alex Nitzman/Carter Buchanan (08/09/04).
Eastern Terminus - Interstate 95 - Bronx, New York City, New York
Perspective from Interstate 278 east
Now traveling northeast on Interstate 278/Bruckner Expressway, this overhead sign is posted on eastbound Bruckner Boulevard (frontage road) at a slip ramp onto eastbound after the Bronx River Parkway and prior to White Plains Road/Castle Hill Avenue. Photo taken by Alex Nitzman and Carter Buchanan (08/09/04).
Eastbound Interstate 278/Bruckner Expressway reaches its final offramp at the exit to White Plains Road and Castle Hill Avenue. Signage for the Bruckner Interchange (Junction Interstate 95, Interstate 678, and Hutchinson River Parkway) appears in the distance. Photo taken by Alex Nitzman and Carter Buchanan (08/09/04).
This Interstate 295/Interstate 678 button copy sign bridge is found on Interstate 278 eastbound after the White Plains Road/Castle Hill Avenue interchange. The upcoming interchange represents the transfer of the Cross-Bronx Expressway from Interstate 95 north to Interstate 295 south, and the transfer of the Bruckner Expressway designation from Interstate 278 east to Interstate 95 north. Since the Bruckner Expressway continues on Interstate 95, it is not mentioned on the guide signs on the approach to the Bruckner Interchange. Photo taken by Alex Nitzman and Carter Buchanan (08/09/04).
Interstate 278/Bruckner Expressway comes to an end at Interstate 95, the Cross-Bronx Expressway. The interchange of Interstate 278 with that of Interstate 95 is within one-half mile of the joint termini of Interstate 295, Interstate 678, and the Hutchinson River Parkway. All of these routes share the same interchange for their respective termini. Therefore access to all of the aforementioned routes is given and thus displayed on this sign bridge along Interstate 278 east. Photo taken by Alex Nitzman and Carter Buchanan (08/09/04).
The merge of Interstate 278 eastbound onto Interstate 95 northbound. Exit 7C departs to the right for Country Club Road and Pelham Bay Park for Interstate 278 eastbound travelers. Photo taken by Alex Nitzman and Carter Buchanan (08/09/04).
Now on the transition ramp from Interstate 278/Bruckner Expressway east to Interstate 295/Cross Bronx Expressway Extension south and Interstate 678 south, the first off ramp connects to the Hutchinson River Parkway via Zerega Avenue. Photo taken by Alex Nitzman and Carter Buchanan (08/09/04).
Still on the transition ramp from Interstate 278/Bruckner Expressway east, the next offramp leads to Interstate 678 south, while the two left lanes connect directly to Interstate 295/Cross Bronx Expressway Extension south. Photo taken by Alex Nitzman and Carter Buchanan (08/09/04).
The transition ramp from Interstate 278/Bruckner Expressway east to Interstate 678 south and Interstate 295/Cross Bronx Expressway Extension south comes alongside Interstate 95 north. Interstate 95 shifts from the Cross Bronx Expressway to the Bruckner Expressway. The transition ramp will split ahead, with the right lane connecting to Interstate 678 south and the left lanes connecting to Interstate 295 south. Photo taken by Alex Nitzman and Carter Buchanan (08/09/04).
Traffic to Interstate 678 south to the Bronx-Whitestone Bridge departs from the transition ramp here. The left two lanes connect to Interstate 295/Cross Bronx Expressway Extension south to the Throgs Neck Bridge. After this exit ramp, Interstate 295 south begins with four through lanes (two of which merge in from the left). Photo taken by Alex Nitzman and Carter Buchanan (08/09/04).
Perspective from Interstate 95/Bruckner Expressway south
Interstate 695 was once a spur of Interstate 295 (similar to the Spur of Interstate 270 in Maryland). Therefore, guide signage for Exit 7A (current Interstate 695) on Interstate 95 southbound used to display Interstate 295 shields only. This button copy overhead shows a diagram for Exits 7A and 7B (Tremont Avenue) with an erroneous Interstate 695 trailblazer affixed (the Interstate 295 and 695 shields should be swapped). Tremont Avenue bisects Interstate 95 between the northern termini of Interstate 295 and Interstate 695. Interstate 295 itself absorbs Interstate 695 (Spur Interstate 295 until 1986), the Throgs Neck Expressway, at the north end of the Throgs Neck toll Bridge over the East River. Photo taken by AARoads (08/29/05).
Interstate 695 splits away from Interstate 95. Interstate 695 not only represents a connection to the eastern most East River Crossing within New York City, but also the shortest route to Long Island from New England and other points north via Interstate 295, the Clearview Expressway, and Interstate 495, the Long Island Expressway, among other routes. There are no proposals at the moment for a Long Island crossing. In the earlier photo, an Interstate 695 shield is affixed to the left-hand panel now, with the original Interstate 295 button copy shield still in place with a "TO" banner next to it. Photos taken by AARoads (08/29/05) and Jim K. Georges (07/98).
Southbound Interstate 95/Bruckner Expressway exits right, while the left lanes continue south onto Interstate 695/Throgs Neck Expressway to Interstate 295 south at Exit 7A. Photo taken by AARoads (08/29/05).
This sign bridge shows the lane allocation for the pending Interstate 95 and 695 southbound split. View looks from an adjacent street to Interstate 95/Bruckner Expressway. Note that the left-hand panel displays only an Interstate 295 shield, a remnant from the days of Interstate 695 as Interstate 295 Spur. Vidcap taken by Alex Nitzman (09/93).
Interstate 95/Bruckner Expressway southbound prepares to split into Interstate 678 south and Interstate 278 west. Southbound Interstate 95 continues westward through the heart of the Bronx to the George Washington Bridge. Interstate 278 meanwhile sinks to the southwest to the southern terminus of Interstate 87 and the Triborough Bridge system. Interstate 678 and the Hutchinson Parkway tie in to the fold from the north-south, providing a second East River crossing into Queens via the Bronx-Whitestone Bridge. Photo taken by Jim K. Georges (07/99).
Perspective from Interstate 295/Cross Bronx Expressway Extension north
After crossing the Throgs Neck Bridge, northbound Interstate 295 prepares to split: the left three lanes continue north on Interstate 295 to connect to Interstate 95/Cross Bronx Expressway south (west) to Upper Manhattan and New Jersey via the George Washington Bridge. The right three lanes prepare to transition onto Interstate 695/Throgs Neck Expressway (Spur Interstate 295) north to Interstate 95/New England Thruway north. Photo taken by Alex Nitzman and Carter Buchanan (08/09/04).
Northbound Interstate 295 and Interstate 695 split. Northbound Interstate 295 and Interstate 695 split. Interstate 695 is known by the New York State Department of Transportation as a distinct (albeit short) Interstate highway, while the Federal Highway Administration refers to Interstate 695 as a spur of Interstate 295 (it is not on the November 2002 Route Log and Finder List). Signs refer to the route as Interstate 695. Note the control city of New Haven, Connecticut, for Interstate 95 north via Interstate 695/Throgs Neck Expressway. Photo taken by Alex Nitzman and Carter Buchanan (08/09/04).
After Interstate 295 and Interstate 695 split, the next northbound interchange is for Exit 11, Randall Avenue. Interstate 295 is now known as the Cross Bronx Expressway Extension, connecting directly to Interstate 95/Cross Bronx Expressway south (west). Photo taken by AARoads (08/29/05).
Northbound Interstate 295/Cross Bronx Expressway Extension reaches Exit 11, Randall Avenue. This is the final local access interchange on northbound Interstate 295. Photo taken by AARoads (08/29/05).
After the Randall Avenue interchange, the final exit on northbound Interstate 295/Cross Bronx Expressway Extension is the Bruckner Interchange. Connections from northbound Interstate 295 are afforded to Interstate 95 west (continuation of the Cross Bronx Expressway) and Interstate 278/Bruckner Expressway southwest; there is NO direct connection to the northbound Hutchinson River Parkway, northbound Interstate 95, or to southbound Interstate 678/Hutchinson River Parkway. It is assumed that all northbound connections would be made via Interstate 695/Throgs Neck Expressway north to Interstate 95/New England Thruway. Photo taken by AARoads (08/29/05).
Entering the Bruckner Interchange, Interstate 295 prepares to split. Left lanes connect to Interstate 95 west via the Cross Bronx Expressway, while the right lanes connect to Interstate 278/Bruckner Expressway southwest. Photo taken by AARoads (08/29/05).
Interstate 295 northbound merges directly onto the Cross Bronx Expressway westbound (Interstate 95 south). The Bruckner Expressway decouples from Interstate 95 south and follows Interstate 278 southwest toward the Triborough Bridge. Southbound Interstate 95, meanwhile, continues west to the George Washington Bridge via the Cross-Bronx Expressway. This set of overheads is featured on northbound Interstate 295/Cross Bronx Expressway Extension as the designation comes to an end. Photo taken by AARoads (08/29/05).
Perspective from Interstate 678/Hutchinson River Parkway north
After descending from the Bronx-Whitestone Bridge, Interstate 678 prepares to meet its end at the Bruckner Interchange: Junction Interstate 95, Interstate 278, Interstate 295, and the Hutchinson River Parkway. There is no connection to Interstate 295 south (Cross Bronx Expressway Extension east) from northbound Interstate 678. Here, northbound Interstate 678 reaches Exit 18, Lafayette Avenue. Use the left two lanes to continue north on the Hutchinson River Parkway (cars only). Photo taken by AARoads (08/29/05).
Interstate 678 north concludes as the Hutchinson River Parkway begins. As noted with the exit signage for Interstates 95 and 278, all trucks must depart the freeway, as they cannot legally use the parkway system. Numerous signs are posted throughout the New York City area that trucks are banned on all parkways. Photo taken by AARoads (08/29/05).
Northbound Interstate 678 ends as the right lane connects to Interstate 95/Bruckner Expressway north to the New England Thruway, while the middle two lanes connect to Interstate 95/Cross Bronx Expressway south (west) and Interstate 278/Bruckner Expressway west. Although there is no access via Interstate 678, the northern terminus of Interstate 295 is situated at the same interchange. Photo taken by AARoads (08/29/05).
Now on the transition ramp to Interstate 95 north and Interstate 95 south/Interstate 278 west, a begin Hutchinson River Parkway shield assembly can be seen on the mainline. There used to be an END Interstate 278 shield at this spot, but it has been removed. The bridges in the background are part of the Bruckner Interchange, the transition of the Cross-Bronx Expressway from Interstate 295 north to Interstate 95 south and the transfer of the Bruckner Expressway from Interstate 278 east to Interstate 95 north. Photo taken by AARoads (08/29/05).
Another button copy sign is posted for the connection to Interstate 278/Bruckner Expressway west to the Triborough Bridge (as seen from the ramp to Interstate 95 north). Photo taken by AARoads (08/29/05).
Returning to the mainline, this END Interstate 678 north and BEGIN Hutchinson River Parkway shield assembly was posted until around 2002, but the END shield was gone by June 2005. The Hutchinson River Parkway continues northward through the Bronx to the suburbs of Mount Vernon, Pelham, and New Rochelle. Eventually the parkway transitions into another 600 series Interstate, that of Interstate 684. Photo taken by Steve Anderson (10/98).
Perspective from Hutchinson River Parkway north
After passing through the Bruckner Interchange, the Hutchinson River Parkway reaches its first offramp at Exit 1, Bruckner Boulevard. The next exit is Exit 2, East Tremont Avenue and Westchester Avenue. Photo taken by Alex Nitzman and Justin Cozart (06/13/05).
Perspective from Hutchinson River Parkway south
Now traveling south on the Hutchinson River Parkway, the penultimate exit from the parkway is Exit 2, Westchester Avenue and East Tremont Avenue. The parkway passes under a bridge with only a nine foot clearance, so high profile traffic must exit here. The final exit is Exit 1, Bruckner Boulevard to Junction Interstate 95/Cross Bronx Expressway west and Junction Interstate 278/Bruckner Expressway southwest. Photo taken AARoads (08/29/05).
Southbound Hutchinson River Parkway reaches Exit 2, Westchester Avenue and East Tremont Avenue. The blue bridge in the distance is the low-profile bridge (nine-foot clearance). The next exit is Exit 1, Bruckner Boulevard to Junction Interstate 95/Cross Bronx Expressway west and Junction Interstate 278/Bruckner Expressway southwest. Photo taken AARoads (08/29/05).
To connect to Junction Interstate 95/Cross Bronx Expressway west and Junction Interstate 278/Bruckner Expressway southwest, traffic on southbound Hutchinson River Parkway must use Exit 1, Bruckner Boulevard. There is no direct freeway to freeway connection. The left two lanes will connect directly to southbound Interstate 678 en route to the Bronx-Whitestone Bridge. Note the service plaza available directly on the parkway. Photo taken AARoads (08/29/05).
Southbound Hutchinson River Parkway approaches Exit 1, Bruckner Boulevard to Junction Interstate 95/Cross Bronx Expressway west and Junction Interstate 278/Bruckner Expressway southwest. The parkway will shift to expressway standards after passing through the Bruckner Interchange. Photo taken AARoads (08/29/05).
A roadside sign advises traffic on southbound Hutchinson River Parkway to use Exit 1, Bruckner Boulevard to Junction Interstate 278 southwest to the Bruckner Expressway and the Triborough Bridge. Photo taken AARoads (08/29/05).
Hutchinson River Parkway transitions directly to Interstate 678 south (two left lanes). Access to Interstate 95 and Interstate 278 west uses Bruckner Boulevard. Traffic continuing south will reach the Bronx-Whitestone Bridge toll plaza in one mile and the borough of Queens in three miles. Photo taken by AARoads (08/29/05).
Perspective from Interstate 278 west
Transitioning from northbound Interstate 295/Cross Bronx Expressway Extension to Interstate 278/Bruckner Expressway west, this is the first westbound Interstate 278 reassurance shield. Photo taken by AARoads (08/29/05).
