Interesting Tidbits about Interstate 84

Interstate 84 is a freeway that follows the US 6 corridor and runs from Pennsylvania up to Massachusetts. It is a popular route, connecting PA through I-81 and New England through the Mass Pike. It is 232 miles long and begins at I-81 in Dunmore, PA near Scranton and ends at the I-90 (Mass Pike) near Sturbridge, MA. It passes through several cities including Boston, Danbury, Hartford, Newburgh, Beacon, Scranton and others. It goes through several types of terrain including the hilly Poconos in Pennsylvania and the Hudson Valley in Connecticut.


I-84 was originally supposed to cut across the Moosic Mountains in order to meet up with I-81 at Moosic. However, rough terrain and engineering difficulties led to the I-84 being realigned to run along the I-380 and into Dunmore, PA. It was extended to overlap with the I-380 in 1972 and reach the I-81 in Scranton. The I-84 was originally supposed to run from Hartford to Providence Rhode Island but environmental concerns about the Nathan Hale State Forest and Scituate Reservoir led to the cancellation of these plans. As a result, the I-84 was designated to run from Hartford Connecticut and up to Sturbridge, Massachusetts.


The I-84 starts at I-81 in Dunmore, Pennsylvania, and runs for about two miles before interchanging with the I-380 and heads west through the Poconos and into Wayne and Pike Counties. The I-84 reaches its highest point (1800 feet) in Pennsylvania. I-84 then enters New York by crossing the Neversink and Delaware rivers. It runs along the New Jersey State Line for about a mile before climbing up to Orange County where it joins the NY-17, the New York Thruway Section of the I-87. It crosses the Hudson River at the Newburg-Beacon Bridge. It exits at the state line and enters Connecticut through the City of Danbury. It passes through several towns in Connecticut and joins several other roads and interstates including; Route 6 and 202, CT8, Interstate 691, and Route 171. At the border town of Union, the I-84 crosses into Massachusetts. It passes through the town of Holland and on to Sturbridge before ending at exit I-90.


The I-84 passes through several cities. These include: Scranton in Pennsylvania, Port Jervis, Middletown, Newburgh and Bacon in New York, and Danbury, Waterbury, Bristol, New Britain and Vernon in Connecticut. Several of these towns offer great attractions to people on the road.
