Interstate 695 New York
Interstate 695 follows the Throgs Neck Expressway, a short connector between I-295 (Throgs Neck Bridge) and I-95 (New England Thruway) in Bronx, New York.
Interstate 695 was a part of Interstate 295 (a spur much like Interstate 270 in Maryland) and known as Spur Interstate 295 until 1986. This spur designation explained why Interstate 695 was not included in the official Route Log and Finders List until December 31, 2014, as the mileage was attributed to I-295. The Throgs Neck Expressway opened in 1961 and was included as the easternmost extent of Interstate 78. When Interstate 78 across New York City was cancelled in 1971, the Cross Bronx Expressway Extension, the Clearview Expressway and Throgs Neck Bridge were signed as Interstate 295 and the Throgs Neck Expressway was designated as Interstate 295 Spur. Interstate 695 replaced Spur Interstate 295 in 1986.
A previous alignment for Interstate 695 in New York City was reserved for the unconstructed route of the Queens Interborough Expressway from the proposed Cross Brooklyn Expressway (I-878) north to the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway (I-278) in Queens. This was designated by AASHTO on June 23, 1969. For more information on I-695, visit Throgs Neck Expressway (by Steve Anderson).
