NEFIAC host cities are very accessible. I-95 runs from north to south through Providence while I-195 connects the city to eastern Rhode Island and southeastern Massachusetts, including New Bedford, Massachusetts, and Cape Cod. I-295 encircles Providence while RI 146 provides a direct connection with Worcester, Massachusetts. New Haven lies at the intersection of Interstate 95 on the coast – which provides access southwards and/or westwards to the western coast of Connecticut and to New York City, and eastwards to the eastern Connecticut shoreline, Rhode Island, and eastern Massachusetts – and Interstate 91, which leads northward to the interior of Massachusetts and Vermont and the Canadian border.
