According to a2zdirectory, US 9 is a US Highway in the US state of New York. The road forms a north-south connection in the east of the state, between New York City and Champlain on Interstate 87, near the Canadian border. The route is 523 kilometers long.
New York City
see Broadway for a more detailed description.
The road enters the city via the George Washington Bridge and then turns north on Broadway and continues north through the northern suburb of Yonkers through many suburbs. En route, one crosses Interstate 287, the conurbation’s northern ring road. Broadway ends at Sleepy Hollow on the Hudson River and becomes Albany Post Road. The road passes through the suburb of Ossining, from where the track follows the Briarcliff-Peekskill Parkway, over the Hudson River to Peekskill, where it intersects US 6 and US 202. US 6 comes from Scranton and runs towards Hartford. US 202 comes from the suburbs of New Jersey and follows the same route of US 6 to the state of Connecticut. The road then continues through the hills, further from the river, and crosses Interstate 84 at Fishkill. From here, the road also has 2×2 lanes and is an important route to access the town of Poughkeepsie. Along the road are some companies and a mall. The road runs over the east bank here, the US 9W runs on the west bank.

After Poughkeepsie, the road still has 2×2 lanes and runs north a short distance from the wide Hudson River. US 9W serves the city of Kingston, and also runs parallel to Interstate 87. The main route of US 9 runs through a quieter area, passing only through the town of Hudson. At Kinderhook, one crosses Interstate 90, which comes from Albany and heads toward Springfield and Boston. The road then reaches the metropolitan area of Albany and crosses the Hudson River at Rensselaer to enter the city. You immediately cross the Interstate 787which runs along the river. The junction with the highway is a tight turbine junction, after which you pass through a high-rise district. The US 9W ends here. A stack interchange then crosses Interstate 90, after which US 9 runs north as a partially grade-separated road, and crosses SR-7, a short east-west highway. Crossing the Mohawk River at Crescent, the road parallels Interstate 87 through the northern suburbs of Albanyruns. At Saratoga Springs one crosses the I-87 and that happens again at Glens Falls. The Hudson River bends west here, after which US 9 runs along Lake George. One then enters the area of the Adirondack Mountains, a remote mountain area in the north of the state. The road runs alongside Schroon Lake, with higher peaks visible in the distance. This area is very sparsely populated with barely more than a hamlet on the route. From a scenic point of view, however, it is a very beautiful route. At Au Sable Chasm the road crosses a canyon after which the road runs directly along the large Lake Champlain. One passes through Plattsburgh, the last larger town before the Canadian border. One then leaves the Adirondack Mountains, after which the area becomes flatter, a harbinger of Canada. At the village of Champlain, US 9 ends a few hundred meters before the border crossing at Interstate 87. From here it is only 50 kilometers to Montreal.
US 9 was created in 1926. The route of US 9 has not changed significantly in New York. US 9W has been added as an alternate route across the west bank of the Hudson River between New York City and Albany. Originally there was also a US 9E between Albany and Glens Falls, this is now US 4. Between 1954 and 1968, Interstate 87 was built parallel to US 9, so that this road no longer has through importance.
According to Agooddir, The Babylon-Northport Expressway is an expressway in the U.S. state of New York. The highway forms a short north-south route on Long Island, east of New York City. The highway connects Babylon with Northport and is 3 kilometers long.
The road begins at the Montauk Highway, an underlying east-west route, and then heads north, through the neighborhoods of Babylon and West Islip. The highway has 2×2 lanes. One then crosses the Sunrise Highway via a cloverleaf. The highway then continues to an at-grade intersection with Hunter Avenue in North Babylon, just before joining the Southern State Parkway.
In 1957, the New York State Department of Public Works (NYSDPW) proposed a 20-mile highway between Babylon and Northport. The highway was to relieve major roads in western Suffolk County, most notably State Route 110 and the Sagtikos State Parkway. In 1966, the highway was included as a priority in a regional development plan with a completion date of 1975. Planning and obtaining the right-of-way began in 1962. The Triborough Bridge and Tunnel Authority, led by Robert Moses estimated that the plan could have been completed in 1970, but only 4 kilometers were completed by the end of 1970.
Plans continued for a few more years for an extension to the north, but opposition from local residents meant that the highway plan was finally canceled in 1982. The acquired right-of-way was slowly sold again in the 1980s and 1990s.
