Pa to NH

I usually take 81-84 up towards New Hampshire. I was thinking about this time taking 78 to 287. Is 287 a decent road?

Thanks

I found no problems on 287, Newburgh to Morristown and return.

If you are going 78 to 287 then 87 to Newburgh NY to get to 84, its a good ride.

If you are going over the Tappen Zee Brigde to 95 and up to New Hampshire you are in for one of the most horrible rides on the east coast.

Pa to NH

I've driven I-287 several times in the past few years, end to end. Fine road. Last time was about a year ago.

I found I-78 a bit rough in many places, but generally OK. It is an old US Highway that was "upgraded" to Interstate status pretty much in name only. In fact, we came through a fair chunk of eastern PA last spring and had a hard time finding good road anywhere.

I-684 was pretty bad the last time I drove it, about 2-3 years ago. It had alternating segments of asphalt and concrete paving, and the concrete sections were in terrible shape. I don't know why they alternate like that. Must be a brother-in-law contract.

I-84 in western CT was pretty bad but rapidly improving. Probably OK by now. CT was putting a lot of time and money into that road-- and for good reason!

Good idea, 684 is the worst stretch of road and gets worse every year.

Beware there is construction and congestion in Waterbury avoid at rush hour.
