I-95 is a main interstate that runs along the east coast from Florida to Maine. It enters New York State at the George Washington Bridge, which crosses the Hudson River, connecting New York and New Jersey. The first section in New York is the Cross Bronx Expressway, which begins in Manhattan and runs east. It goes over the Alexander Hamilton Bridge, which crosses the Harlem River to the Bronx. The Cross Bronx Expressway runs southeast across the Bronx.

In the southeastern Bronx, I-95 passes through the Bruckner Interchange, a massive interchange of I-95, I-278, I-295, I-678, and the Hutchinson Parkway. After passing through this interchange, I-95 becomes the Bruckner Expressway. (West of this point, the Bruckner Expressway is I-278.) It curves to the north and the Throgs Neck Expressway (I-695) merges into it. A few exits further north in the Bronx, the Bruckner Expressway ends and I-95 becomes the New England Thruway, an extension of the New York Thruway. The New England Thruway runs north through the Bronx and Westchester. It ends at the border with Connecticut, where it becomes the Connecticut Turnpike.
