Shows as a proposal in 1961. Between 1967 and 1969, it was completed in Massachusetts. The 1969 state highway map shows a proposed route continuing east of I-95, then turning due south at MA 123. It would have crossed I-195 at exit 2, then turned west to return into RI. No route number is listed, just the designation “Proposed Interstate”. In 1971, this proposal was shown as I-895, without the turn west into RI. A 1972 map shows the built section of 295 listed as 895 as well; I would believe this to be a error. Between 1974 and 1975, this proposed route was removed from the maps.
