Hwy Width Restrictions in the east

Some of my map information referencing width/height restrictions, etc. indicate their are some width restrictions in both New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Is this just for the State highways and back roads? The information I have indicates some highways are 8-1/2 ft, while some are only 8 ft. What about I-84 between Scranton and Middleton, NY, which is it?

Is this a major issue an RV'er needs to be concerned about?

You will have no problems on I-84 from Scranton all the way to Sturbridge, MA. It's the secondary roads you need to be careful of in the east. Some are not only narrow but there are quite a few low underpasses to be aware of. You should not have any trouble on any of the Interstate Highways.

The other thing to be aware of is parkways. In MA, CT and NY the only vehicles allowed on the parkways are cars and motorcycles.

I would also suggest picking up a copy of the 2012 Motor Carriers' Road Atlas. If a highway is highlighted in yellow you will fit.

Two 12 foot lanes are required in each direction. You won't have a problem with size on any interstate in the country.
