Interstate 295 (District of Columbia)
The 8.05 mile (13.0km) long Interstate 295 in Washington D.C. and Maryland is a spur route connecting I-95/I-495 on the Potomac River just outside the district boundaries in Maryland with I-395 in downtown Washington. DC 295, the only current District of Columbia numbered highway, splits from I-295 near its north end, south of the bridges over the Anacostia River. The route continues to Baltimore, though it changes identities several times: I-295, DC 295, MD 201, the Baltimore-Washington Parkway (an unnumbered federally owned expressway operated by the National Park Service), and MD 295 .
