This is a list of Israeli highways. Besides highways in Israel proper, it includes highways in the West Bank and the Golan Heights, because the Israeli administration maintains them in these areas.

There are 48 designated Israeli highways. Most of these are open-access arterial expressways, which may be entered from ordinary junctions. Some are limited-access freeways, which may be entered from interchanges. Six highways are freeways, six are partially limited-access freeways and partially expressways, and the other 35 are expressways. There is only one three-digit road in the country classified as a freeway, Route 431. Highway 6, the Trans-Israel Highway, is the only toll road.

Two of the expressways (Highway 57 and Highway 60) are divided into several separate sections as a result of an IDF decree forbidding Israelis from traveling on certain stretches of these highways (see Notes below).

  1. ^ Also referred to as "Sderot (Menachem) Begin", "(Menachem) Begin Boulevard", "Begin Expressway" or "Begin Highway", the road has been known as and still appears on some maps as "Route 404". In 2012, the Israel Ministry of Transport and the Jerusalem Municipality began using the new designation, "Highway 50". New blue "Highway 50" signs are being posted to reflect this change.
  2. ^ a b At the time of its designation Highway 57 was a consecutive highway, running from Netanya to Adam Bridge Border Crossing. With the outbreak of the Al-Aqsa Intifada an IDF decree forbade Israelis from traveling on the Nitzanei Oz – Hamra section, effectively splitting Highway 57 into two separate highways. Final designation of the highway is dependent on the final status agreement between Israel and the Palestinians.
  3. ^ a b c At the time of its designation Highway 60 was a consecutive highway, running from Beersheba to Nazareth. With the outbreak of the Al-Aqsa Intifada an IDF decree forbade Israelis from traveling the section between the Qalandia checkpoint and Geva Binyamin and the section between Tel Dotan and the Jalamah checkpoint, effectively splitting Highway 60 into three separate highways. Final designation of the highway is dependent on the final status agreement between Israel and the Palestinians.
  4. ^ Travel on the northernmost 24 km of this section of Highway 60 (Shavei Shomron - Tel Dotan) is recommended only with an IDF escort, due to security concerns.
