So I'm up in Maine at a conference right now and am going to Pittsburgh on the way home. I have to go through Connecticut, but after that I was curious if anyone had any input on the route (in terms of enforcement, etc) that I take. My two options would be #1 -- similar to my normal route from DC/Philly or #2 -- I was messing around with Google Maps and figured this is only 5 min longer but have no idea if these are smaller/bigger and/or faster/slower roads. Also the turnpike is nice for their use of K-band (even though they're damn good at IO), but not sure who works on 84 and how enforcement is there).
#1 (this is similar to the route I would normally take from DC or Philly)
95 South (Pass through GW bridge, NY, some of NJ)
78 West to Harrisburg
76 West (the PA turnpike)
376 West into the city
80 West (on here for like 180 miles)
PA 28 South (for around 50 miles) basically to the city
So is it worth avoiding NY/NJ? Or are 84 west and PA-28 too small of roads that I can't just go faster with the traffic like on 78.
I appreciate it guys!
