How to avoid the Delaware Maryland state line toll on I-95

Has anyone used this route? I found it online but I'm not sure of any restrictions for a MH. i.e. height, parkway

Thanks
How to avoid the Delaware Maryland state line toll on I-95



Southbound
If you are traveling on I-95 (JFK Memorial Highway or Delaware Turnpike) southbound to Maryland, you should exit I-95 when you see Route 896 (Exit 1). Take Exit 896 North which is South College Avenue towards the University of Delaware until you see Christina Parkway (University of DE will be to your right). Make a left onto Christina Parkway (west) and stay on for about 1.1 miles. You will come to a dead end which is Elkton Road. Make a left onto Elkton Road and you will see a sign for I-95. Stay on Elkton Road which will take you to I-95 southbound and you have saved yourself $4 in tolls for a 5 minute detour!

Northbound
If you are traveling on I-95 northbound from Maryland to Delware, get off on Exit #109 on I-95 (which is MD-279 Elkton Newark Road to MD-213). Take Elkton Road north/east to you see Christina Parkway, which is two major intersections or about 2 miles. Make a right onto Christina Parkway and look for College Avenue which is the first major intersection. At the stop light of College and Christina, make a right on to College Avenue and you will see signs for I-95 north and south. You have saved yourself another $4 on your return trip!

It is definitely not just 5 minutes extra.

FWIW - I don't know the distance involved but on my RV with stop and go traffic and slow speeds it might cost more for the additional fuel than for the tolls. Also I'm old enough to where I tend to consider any additional intersection as a potential accident waiting to happen.
Safe travels

I have to agree with 1ciderdog. Stop and go ever with 5 miles longer and time = cheaper to stop at toll booth.

Forget that; just use PA turnpike to US 15, then US 17 to return to I 95.

Longer, less stress.

Besides, it's ye journey, not the destination for some of us...
