Travel directions

The scenery along I-88.

The highway begins on the north side of Binghamton, a regional city of 50,000. The highway exits from Interstate 81 and has 2×2 lanes. You pass through slightly hilly area, with an alternation of fields and forests. The highway runs parallel to the Susquehanna River. Further east the route becomes more hilly, and a scenic route to drive, especially in autumn. One passes by Oneonta, the only place on the route with more than 10,000 inhabitants. The highway is quite quiet, as it is not a major thoroughfare between major cities. State Route 7 parallels the highway for the entire route. The highway is also known as the Warren M Anderson Expressway. At Schenectady, a regional city of 60,000 people, I-88 connects with Interstate 90.


I-88 was not one of the original Interstate Highways of 1956, but was added in the Federal Highway Act of 1968. Procurement of the route began immediately and construction of the highway began shortly thereafter. The first section near Binghamton was opened in 1971. Construction initially focused on the western half of the route between Binghamton and Oneonta, which was substantially completed in 1977. In the first half of the 1980s, the eastern section of the route between Oneonta and Schenectady was built, one of the last large-scale new construction projects in New York State. In 1989, the westernmost section opened, connecting to I-81 at Binghamton. Thus, this is where both the oldest and youngest part of I-88 is located.

The highway then has 2×2 lanes and passes through the center of Schenectady, a city with 62,000 inhabitants. I-890 runs parallel to the Mohawk River here. The highway also provides access to a General Electric complex, one of the reasons for constructing I-890 at the time. At the suburb Guilderland, I-890 ends at I-90 again.


The first section opened to traffic in southern Schenectady circa 1962, connecting I-90 and SR-146. In 1964 this section was extended a short distance to the center of Schenectady. In 1968, the highway was extended west through downtown, and by 1974 the entire highway was completed when it joined I-90 west of Schenectady.
