Interstate 78 - Auxiliary Routes

Auxiliary Routes

All of I-78's auxiliary routes serve New York City; however, none of these routes actually intersects I-78, following the route's truncation at the eastern end of the Holland Tunnel.

  • Interstate 278 runs from U.S. Route 1/9 near Elizabeth, New Jersey over the Goethals Bridge, through Staten Island, over the Verrazano Narrows Bridge and through Brooklyn and Queens, and across the Triborough Bridge into the Bronx to end at Interstate 95 at the Bruckner Interchange. Interstate 278 was planned to extend west from Elizabeth to Interstate 78 in Springfield, Union County, New Jersey, and was to intersect I-78 at the east end of the Williamsburg Bridge in Brooklyn. Until 1972, I-278 ran along Interstate 895 and a proposed extension to Interstate 95, while Interstate 278 east of I-895 was I-878.
  • Interstate 478 is an unsigned designation for the Brooklyn-Battery Tunnel, a spur from Interstate 278 into lower Manhattan. Plans were made to continue it north along the West Side Highway (Route 9A) to Interstate 78 at the Holland Tunnel, but have been canceled. Older plans would have given it the same purpose — connecting I-78 with I-278 - but along the Manhattan Bridge.
  • Interstate 678 runs from I-278 at the Bruckner Interchange south over the Bronx-Whitestone Bridge to John F. Kennedy International Airport. It was to intersect Interstate 78 at its south end. Original plans took I-678 west on the Grand Central Parkway to I-278.
  • Interstate 878 is an unsigned designation for part of New York State Route 878, a short east–west freeway on the north edge of Kennedy Airport. It was once planned as part of I-78, and now intersects I-678. The number was assigned in 1989.
  • A former Interstate 878 existed from 1959 to 1972 along present I-278 east of Interstate 895. (I-895 was part of I-278.)

In eastern Pennsylvania, Route 378 into downtown Bethlehem was once Interstate 378, but was redesignated as a state route after I-78 was rerouted to a new southerly alignment. An Interstate 178 was initially planned as an extension into downtown Allentown, but was canceled due to local opposition.

Famous quotes containing the word routes:

    The myth of independence from the mother is abandoned in mid- life as women learn new routes around the mother—both the mother without and the mother within. A mid-life daughter may reengage with a mother or put new controls on care and set limits to love. But whatever she does, her child’s history is never finished.
    Terri Apter (20th century)
