I-278

I-278 is composed of the Staten Island Expressway, Gowanes Expressway, Brooklyn-Queens Expressway, Grand Central Parkway, and most of the Bruckner Expressway. While it is more of a north-south freeway, it is signed east-west, and is the only road to enter all five boroughs of NYC. I-278 was originally planned to follow the Sheridan Expressway (now I-895), but was realigned onto the Bruckner Expressway (orignally planned as I-878).
