This aerial shows the way in which I-95 bisects the Financial District of downtown from Federal Hill and the West Side of Providence. Overpasses from top to bottom include Broadway, Washington Street, Westminster Sreet, Broad Street, and Pine Street (no longer extant). Construction of I-95 was completed in 1965, amidst the establishment of the High Speed Ground Transportation Act and the construction of I-195, both major influences on transportation networking, tourism, and commerce for Downtown Providence. I-95 has changed drastically over the years yet still connects and disconnects areas of Providence from each other.
