The Cross Westchester Expwy extends eastward from the Thomas Dewey NYS Thruway I-87, in Tarrytown, to Rye in eastern Westchester County, along the shore of the Long Island Sound. It was originally intended to cross the Sound on the never built Oyster Bay Bridge, south of which it would have continued on to Long Island's South Shore upon the present Seaford-Oyster Bay Expwy. The I-287 route shares the right of way across the Hudson to the west, with its parent I-87, eventually parting from it again in Rockland County, where it arcs its way south through New Jersey. The Cross Westchester section has become notorious for traffic tie-ups that sometimes stretch its entire length. Ongoing reconstruction in sections does not help matters any. Unlike my experiences with the Cross Bronx however, I've usually encountered no jams heading westward from the Hutchinson River Pkwy to exit 5, which is a route I'm frequently on.
