Interstate 695 links I-295 and the Throgs Neck Bridge with I-95 along the Bruckner Expressway within Bronx, New York. The 1.52 mile long route extends the Throgs Neck Expressway north from I-295 (Cross Bronx Expressway) at the Throgs Neck and Edgewater Park neighborhoods to I-95 between the Pelham Bay and Country Club communities.

I-695 was originally designated along the proposed Queens Interborough Expressway north from the proposed Cross Brooklyn Expressway (I-878) to I-278 along the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway in Queens. This was approved by AASHO on June 23, 1969. The Queens Interborough Expressway was never built, and I-695 was eventually reassigned to the Throgs Neck Expressway over I-295 Spur in 1986.
