The I-90 is a 3,000 mile interstate and transcontinental highway which transverses 13 states. Its eastern end begins on Route 1A in Boston, MA while its western end can be found on SR 519 in Seattle, Washington. It goes through the states of Washington, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, South Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York and Massachusetts. It passes through major cities like Chicago, Boston, Buffalo, Billings, Madison, Spokane, Gary and many others. It follows toll roads east of the Wisconsin-Illinois border.


Several highways, including the Massachusetts Turnpike, Indiana Toll Road, Jane Addams Memorial Highway and several others were renamed to form what is known today as the I- 90. In the 1950s, the road that was known then as the US-10 was expanded to include four highways. In the subsequent decades, it incorporated the highways named above to develop into the interstate highway that we know today.


The I-90 covers the following routes across various states. In Washington, it begins at the SR519 and exits at Spokane near the Idaho State Line. It transverses for 119 kilometres through Idaho and exits at Lookout Pass as it enters Montana. The I-90 enters Montana from Shoshone County in Idaho and exits just south of Alberton. After splitting from the I-94 in Montana, the highway enters Wyoming for a 208 mile stretch before exiting again via Sand Creek Road into South Dakota.
