Encyclopedia > Interstate 290 (Massachusetts)

Massachusetts I-290 runs for 20 miles from Auburn, Massachusetts to Marlborough, Massachusetts. It is a continuation of I-395 North of I-90 (the Mass Pike) and runs through downtown Worcester, Massachusetts, I-190 splits off, and I-290 runs across Lake Quinsigamond and east to I-495 in Marlborough. The portion in Worcester is elevated and much despised - it split the city in two. There are buildings very close to the highway, including a grand church which faces the road (referred to locally as "Our Lady of the Highway"). Massachusetts is currently building a freeway connector (Route 146) from I-290 in Worcester to the Mass Pike and then south to Providence, Rhode Island.
