Interstate 687 was once supposed to be a connection from Exit 5A on Interstate 90 to Exit 3 on Interstate 87. This major connector highway would've been named The Northside-Northway Connection. Now that Interstate 687 is no longer in Interstate Highway Plans, the number is open for future highways in the area. This website is devoted to future highway development in the greater Albany, New York area. This website also contains information of renovating Interstate 787.
