Around the Interstate Highways

Traffic circle sign on Interstate 587 at Interstate 87 in Kingston, New York

At the northwest corner of Kingston, New York is the city's sole interchange with Interstate 87, the New York State Thruway (a tollway). Access is via Interstate 587; at the western end of I-587, a traffic circle is used to provide access to the tollway entrance as well as to a city arterial, Washington Avenue. Interstate 587 is a two-mile-long freeway extending from US 209, west of the Thruway, to an intersection in central Kingston.
