Interstate 95 (usually called I-95) is an important Interstate highway that runs north to south in the eastern part of the United States. It is about 1,919.74 miles (3,089.52 km) long.[1] Its southern end is at U.S. Route 1 in Miami, Florida and its northern end is at the Canadian border in Maine. It connects many major cities in the eastern half of the United States.

Gap[change | change source]

Interstate 95 has a very famous and confusing gap north of Trenton, New Jersey. Because a freeway in the area was canceled, travelers wishing to travel north past Trenton must use parts of Interstate 295 and Interstate 195 to continue on Interstate 95. There is a project that is going on to fix this by making a junction between Interstate 95 and the Pennsylvania Turnpike.
