I-95 is one of the oldest routes in the Interstate Highway System (IHS) and is the longest north/south interstate highway. Although it is the 6th longest highway (several east/west highways are longer) I-95 passes through more states than any other with a total of 15. I-90. which runs from Boston, MA to Seattle, WA is second with 13 states served.
I-95 is known as one of the busiest and most congested interstate corridors in the country and arguably the busiest on the east coast, which creates more opportunities for car accidents.
Just this past weekend, major accidents were reported from Palm Beach in South Florida to Daytona Beach, SC to Fayetteville, NC to New York State. Road work is almost always happening somewhere on this route, resulting in traffic pattern shifts like what is occurring in the New Rochelle, NY area.
If you are travelling for vacation or work or your daily commute puts you on I-95, stay updated on your local traffic and road repair/construction conditions through your local radio stations or websites like http://www.navbug.com. You can also download an iTunes app, which is also provided by NavBug. Use these resources to better prepare you for delays or to plan alternate routes to save time and provide safer travelling.
