Interstate 590 (or just I-590) is a short tertiary spur interstate route of Interstate 90 that primarily runs through Brighton. Its intersection with I-490 was previously affectionately called the Can of Worms, due to the complexities of two thru expressways, a couple arterial roads, and a major rail route meeting in a poorly-planned and executed way.

Intersections on the interstate portion are:

Following its northern terminus as an Interstate at I-490, the expressway continues north as State Route 590 and then Sea Breeze Drive, getting weirder and weirder (including four roundabouts/rotaries/traffic circles) the farther north you go, until eventually terminating at Culver Road just west of the Irondequoit Bay Outlet Bridge which sometimes goes over the outlet of Irondequoit Bay.
