and I-695 Throgs Neck Bridge and Clearview Expressway and Cross Bronx Expwy. Extension
I-695 was not truly a highway number until 2008. It had been NYSDOT's name for I-295 Spur, which is what the FHWA called the highway connecting the Throgs Neck Bridge to the New England Thruway. For once, the FHWA finally agreed to NYSDOT's plan and let the 695 stand.

The western frontage road as I-295 approaches the bridge... except this is facing north. Up to the southernmost cross street, each frontage road only goes one-way, but this one's two-way to Lawton Ave.
