| By sheer numbers, the Interstate 95 Highway is one the busiest, most well known, and one of the most important interstate highways in the USA. |
The i-95 is the main north-south land-based transportation corridor for the east coast of the United States... the i-95 is used by millions of people daily... the highway is a critical transportation connector for the majority of the east coast population ... the i-95 conveniently provides direct connections to most of the largest cities located along the east coast, as well as, hundred's of smaller communities & cities located along it's approx. 1,900 mile length... facilitating easy automotive travel between communities along it's route.
The Interstate 95 is also sometimes referred to as the 'i-95', the 'i-95 Corridor', the 'i-95 Highway', 'i-95 Freeway' in addition to many other names.
Starting near the north-east corner of the USA at Houlton Maine, the i-95 travels south through 15 different states (16 if you include the District of Columbia)... at the south end of the i-95, the highway terminates in Miami, where it becomes the Dixie Highway or US Highway 1... the US Highway 1 continues south eventually reaching Key West FL. If you follow the i-95 to it's very north-end, you will eventually reach Canada, if you cross the border into Canada, you will enter the Canadian province of New Brunswick.
Not only does the i-95 provide a convenient transportation corridor for the east coast, the highway also offers many great tourism opportunities, as the i-95 travels through or in close proximity to some of America's greatest cities, attractions, scenic spots, historic sites, and beaches.
Many cities located along the i-95 also offer excellent business opportunities; because of the way the i-95 uniquely and conveniently connects such a large number of major cities... businesses located in strategic cities along the i-95 can gain certain cost efficiencies, while at the same time, reach very large markets/economies... this combination of transportation efficiencies & easy access to very large markets, cannot easily be replicated.
According to the software program Streets & Trips, the program calculates the entire length of the i-95 at approximately 1,927 miles long, and takes approx. 30 hrs. and 35 minutes of straight driving time to complete... it calculates an approx. trip time of 3 days and 6 hrs. when factoring in sleep/rest time.
