Three major express routes run east and west through Long Island: the Long Island Expressway (interstate Route 495), Northern State Parkway and Southern State Parkway. Other local, but major east-west routes include Route 25A and Route 25 on the North Shore; and Route 27 and Route 27A on the south shore.
