Interstate 195 (I-195) is a 4.4-mile-long (7.1 km) spur freeway connecting I-95 (its parent route) in the west with Miami Beach in the east. It crosses Biscayne Bay by traveling over the Julia Tuttle Causeway, named after Miami founder Julia Tuttle.
It is part of the longer State Road 112 (SR 112), which continues to the west as the Airport Expressway and to the east as Arthur Godfrey Road (41st Street).
I-195 begins at the eastern end of the I-95 and SR 112 interchange, heading east with interchanges with Miami Avenue and U.S. Route 1 (US 1) before heading onto the Julia Tuttle Causeway, where the interstate crosses Biscayne Bay. At the eastern end of the causeway in Miami Beach, it has an interchange with SR 907 before terminating at the intersection of SR 907A and Arthur Goodfrey Road, about a mile west of SR A1A.
On December 23, 1961, three signed roads along the route of SR 112 were opened: the 36th Street Tollway (now the Airport Expressway), I-195, and I-195 Spur, along with a stretch of I-95 in Miami. I-195 Spur was the surface portion of the west–east state road along Arthur Godfrey Road in Miami Beach, connecting I-195 and SR A1A east of the causeway. The I-195 Spur signs disappeared from the road shortly after the designation was decommissioned by the newly formed United States Department of Transportation in the late 1960s.
