Not sure about 485 but 495 is the longest of three major arteries around Boston. Traffic is usually lighter than the other two at any given time.

Assuming weekdays:

Rt 95 is okay as long as you are thru the city by 6:30AM or after 9:30 AM. Or before 3:00pm or after 6:30pm.

Rt 93 is thru the tunnel but do-able with in the same times as Rt 95.

I do 93 and 95 both northbound and southbound regularly. You will not save any time by going 93. Go 95 unless you can't avoid peak times. Then 495 is a long haul around but it will keep you out of most of the traffic.

If you are going on a weekend watch out for what is going on at the "Gahden", Fenway, Gillette Stadium or the Comcast center. They can all throw you for a loop!

Hope this helps.

If I'm not mistaken taking propane thru the tunnel on 93 is not allowed. Unless time and speed are not a factor I'd avoid rush hour regardless of your route.

My recommendation depends on the Bridge you are taking.

Bourne Bridge: Rt 95 to Rt 495

Sagamore Bridge: Rt 95 to Rt 93 north (this is in the Dedham/Canton area) to RT 3

since travel time is not important and my dislike for traffic i think the 495 route is for us. so, i guess that means the bourne bridge. looks like right after you go over the bridge you head north on the scenic road up to 6.
does this sound correct.
thanks

It's been a while since I've travelled to the Cape. If I recall correctly, after you cross the Bourne Bridge Rt 6A will take you to Rt 6. Another option is BEFORE you get to the Bourne Bridge you can pick up RT 6 and follow that, then go over the Sagamore Bridge.

If you are not aware of it, you can get traffic reports a couple of different ways. (1) WBZ radio (1030 AM) has traffic on the "3's" (2) Dial 511 on your cell phone. Here you can get reports for ME, NH & MA.

Enjoy your trip.
