Interstate 87 New York

Interstate 87 entails three distinct roadways within the Empire State. From Bronx, New York northward to the city line, the Interstate follows the Major Deegan Expressway, an urban freeway between the Triborough Bridge and West Chester County. Upon its exit from the city, Interstate 87 enters the New York Thruway system mainline. The New York Thruway carries the designation northward to a merge with Interstate 287 at the Cross-West Chester Expressway. Interstate 87 & 287 overlap west across the Tappan Zee Bridge over the Hudson River to their split at Suffern. Interstate 287 turns southwest toward Mahwah and Morristown, New Jersey as Interstate 87 leaves the metropolitan area for Poughkeepskee, Kingston, and the Capital District.

At the Capital District, Interstate 87 leave the New York Thruway system for the Adirondack Northway, a freeway linking Albany with Rouses Point and the Canadian border south of Montreal, Quebec. The Adirondack Northway represents a scenic drive as it serves the cities of Glen Falls, Saratoga Springs, Lake George, Plattsburgh, and Champlain. Interstate 87 provides a seamless transition to Quebec Autoroute 15.
