How can I avoid NYC area traffic.

Taking I 95N from south Jersey. What Would be the best way to get to Acadia NP. Once I figure the best way around Newark NYC I plan to jump back on 95. Any sage advice on the NYC AREA issue and the rest of the trip would be appreciated. This is new territory for us. We plan to go August 6. Thanks Ed &Sharon.

I'd take I-287 W around the NYC area. At the NJ/NY border, get on I-87 N to Newburgh, NY and I-84. I-84 merges with I-90 at Sturbridge, MA. Continue on I-90 until I-495, which will take you around Boston. I-495 will join I-95 near the MA/NH border, from there it's north to Maine. I used to live near the I-287/I-78 interchange, in Liberty Corner, I've used I-84 to get to Maine and New Hampshire, it's the best way to avoid major traffic.

Make sure that you don't get in th wrong lane and end up going across the George Washington bridge. $75 cash for 35 ft. Rv and towed.

It is not the traffic on I-95 through NYC that makes you pucker up, it is that $105.00 toll fee they charged to cross the George Washington Bridge. That really made me pucker up. From Lancaster, PA to Boston/Cape Cod, toll fees were more than cost of diesel fuel for the drive! ARGH Who authorized states and cities to charge tax payers for driving on U. S. Interstate Highways? My coach has a tag axle and towing a Jeep. The toll frogs charge me the same thing they charge an 18 wheel commercial vehicle! We are being robbed by the Government, again!!

I run to Rhinebeck NY every year from south jersey. NJTP to either 287 or GSPW. Run that to inter state 87 to inter state 84. I go north on 9, but you can stay straight. Look at a map to get an idea. Hope this helps.

The PA Turnpike and George Washington Bridge were built before the Interstate highway system was created in the '50's. The high tolls are less for revenue production (although they use the money) and more to discourage driving in the heavily congested region. Using I-81, I-84, you can by-pass NYC metro area and avoid all tolls. Commercial trucks do it all the time, you'll see an increased number of trucks on the routes I mentioned.
