Choice between 95 though Philadelphia or NJ Turnpike over Delaware Bridge to reach De

Been reading that both routes have construction issues and trying to figure out the best way to get from New England to Delaware beach area. Anyone pass through here recently?

Check out I 295, it's toll free and skips Philly.

Jump off 95 at 195.

The NJTP is expensive.

I live by the DE beaches. This time of year, you are going to hit construction, wherever you go in DE, PA and NJ. They are trying to get the roads fixed for the tourist season.....

Doesn't that go to the Delaware Bridge as well? How about the bridge using route 322? This comes in south of Philly.

FYI, If you are traveling to DE in a Saturday expect heavy traffic. This time the year isn't bad. Starting in a few weeks the locals stay away from the beaches. Traffic is really bad as in long backups.....

The 322 bridge has 10 ft lanes and a $37., 4 axle, one way toll, towards PA. It's an old narrow bridge.

The Delaware Memorial is cheaper and much wider.

Hopefully in the afternoon they are going the other way

My choice is usually the Turnpike. Smoother and simpler, but if cost is a factor take I-295 as previously said. Or, for free, you can get off the Turnpike at I-195 (exit 7A??), go west to I 295 north and that will hook you up onto I-95 south in PA. Then you just have to run thru Philly and endure the bumps and traffic, but like I said, it's free from the Turnpike.

One nice thing about the turnpike is the rest stops and fuel. Don't mind the tolls as much as sitting in traffic on the bridge for hours. Other than that, the turnpike would be my preferred route.

DO NOT use I-95 through Philly.I do all the time,unless it 1/3AM.It has two work zones,narrow lanes and and people who cant stay in their lane.NJ turn pike to 7-A go west on I-195 to I-295 SOUTH.Or just stay on NJ turnpike

I drove through Philadelphia pulling a travel trailer before. It was the scariest thing I ever did!

And DO NOT, for the next few days, plan on going over the Del Mem from NJ to DE. See my post in the "word of warning" thread - they discovered a cable problem on the southbound span yesterday PM and it's ONE LANE all the way across the bridge. The traffic backup made the Philly news this morning. Take the Commo Barry to I-95/I-495 South.
