Thanks for replies.

With snow squalls and road de-icing on I-81 decided to go I-95, (I-495 around DC, I-695 around Bal and I-287 around NYC) Left Richmond at 1:00 pm, traffic a bit thick from just south of DC to just south of Bal. After the Key Bridge, clear sailing. 10.5 hrs from Richmond to Worcester.

Apparently the tolls have skyrockets. It was $70 last year (4 axles) this year it was $150 (5 axles). The Delaware I-95 toll alone was $48. Looks like I-81 from now on.

Oh, I understand perfectly. I'd much rather drive 10 miles further than come anywhere near NY City, or pay the tolls.

Anyone use I-84 between Scranton, PA and Port Jervis, NY? We did it west bound a couple of years ago and swore we'd never take that section again. It qualified as one of the worst sections of pavement in the US in our opinion. Just wondering how it is now?

They've done a lot of work on that stretch. We came through there last fall when we were heading for FL. , and we both mentioned how much better it was.
