The New York Thruway authority maintains the New England Thruway section of Interstate 95.

Although the stretch is maintained by funds derived from tolls, only the stretch between Exits 16 and 17 in New Rochelle is tolled. Pictured here is the New England Thruway toll barrier on Interstate 95 northbound. Photo taken 08/29/05.
Exit 17 quickly departs Interstate 95 northbound beyond the New England Thruway toll plaza for Jefferson Street and Chatsworth and Madison Avenues. Chatsworth Avenue stems northwest from downtown Larchmont to Rockingstone Avenue and Forest Avenues in unincorporated Westchester County. Photo taken 08/29/05.
Interstate 95 northbound leaves the Larchmont area for Mamaroneck on the drive between Exits 17 and 18A. Pictured here is the one-mile overhead for Exit 18A and Fenimore Road at the Weaver Street (New York 125) overpass. Photo taken 08/29/05.

Mamaroneck Avenue intersects Interstate 95 in the form of two interchanges at Exit 18B. A loop ramp enters I-95 northbound from a southbound access road at Saxon Woods Park. A northbound off-ramp connects Interstate 95 north with Mamaroneck Avenue north for Harrison and White Plains to the east of there. Mamaroneck Avenue comprises a main north-south arterial between Mamaroneck and downtown White Plains. Photo taken 08/29/05.
Interstate 95 leaves Mamaroneck for the city of Harrison near the West Street over crossing. Photo taken 08/29/05.
Interstate 95 continues northeast toward the Exit 19 trumpet interchange with Playland Parkway at Rye. Playland Parkway constitutes an east-west roadway between New England Thruway and the Playland Amusement Park at Westchester County Playland Park. Photo taken 08/29/05.
A long off-ramp departs Interstate 95 northbound for the tight interchange with Playland Parkway east at Exit 19. Playland Parkway intersects Theodore Fremd Ave and U.S. 1 (Boston Post Road) within the next half mile. Theodore Fremd Avenue leads west to Harrison and in conjunction with North Street, north to Harrison. Photo taken 08/29/05.

Photo taken 08/29/05.
Interstate 95 draws to within 1.50 miles of its final three New York state interchanges: Exit 20 with U.S. 1 (Boston Post Road) south, Exit 21 with Interstate 287 (Cross-Westchester Expressway) westbound and U.S. 1 north, and Exit 22 with Midland Avenue. Photo taken 08/29/05.
One half mile south of the Interstate 287 (Cross-Westchester Expressway) westbound beginning at Exit 21 on Interstate 95 north at the Central Avenue overpass. The Cross-Westchester Expressway is maintained by the New York Thruway authority though no tolls are collected on it. The freeway ventures through to Harrison, White Plains, and Elmsford across Westchester County. Interstate 287 merges with Interstate 87 on the New York Thruway mainline to span the Hudson River between Tarrytown and Nyack via the Tappan Zee Bridge. Photo taken 08/29/05.
Exit 20 departs Interstate 95 northbound onto U.S. 1 (Boston Post Road) southbound for downtown Rye and junction New York 120 (Purchase Street). Photo taken 08/29/05.
The close proximity of U.S. 1 to the Interstate 95 & 287 interchange allows for northbound connections to the Boston Post Road to be made by Interstate 287 west (Exit 12). U.S. 1 continues north from I-287 into downtown Port Chester via Main Street. Interstate 287 (Cross-West Chester Expressway) otherwise entails the northern bypass route of the New York city metropolitan area between Connecticut and Northern New Jersey. Photo taken 08/29/05.
Interstate 287 westbound traffic departs Interstate 95 northbound for the Tappan Zee Bridge, Suffern, and Albany (via Interstate 87 north). The loop ramp onto the Cross-Westchester Expressway splits with the U.S. 1 northbound ramp nearby. Exit 22 and U.S. 1 (Boston Post Road) both serve downtown Port Chester. Photo taken 08/29/05.
