Dubbed Interstate 781, the Fort Drum Connector Highway is a 5 mile long auxiliary route of the Interstate Highway System.

The highway runs between Route 81 north of Watertown to the Fort Drum gate east of Route 11.  The highway is designed to help alleviate heavy traffic on US 11.

Interstate 781 also carries the designation of the Paul Cerjan Memorial Highway.  Cerjan is a Rome native who presided over a large expansion project at Fort Drum in the 1980s.
