Description:
Route 84 (Rhode Island) redirects here. For the once-planned Interstate Highway, see Interstate 84 .
Interstate 95, the main north–south Interstate Highway on the east coast of the United States, runs generally southwest-northeast through the U.S. state of Rhode Island. It runs from the border with Connecticut near Westerly through Warwick and Providence and to the Massachusetts state line in Pawtucket. It has two auxiliary route, both of which enter Massachusetts—Interstate 195, a spur from Providence east to Cape Cod, and Interstate 295, a western bypass of the Providence-Pawtucket area.
