Mass to PA road report

Here's a bit of a road report for any who might be traveling these routes in the reasonably near future. Subjective terms like "pretty good" or "rough" are from the point of view of a motorhome with 110psi front tires.

20 OCT, Bellingham, MA to E Stroudsburg, PA; I-90Westbound / I-84Westbound to Port Jervis / US209South

The western segments of I-495 around Boston are in very good shape in both directions. I-90 west from I-495 to the I-84 interchange near Sturbridge is basically pretty good with some rough spots at bridge boundaries. There is also an area of several miles in the Millbury area (Exits 10, 10A, and 11) that has some pretty rough sections in both lanes.

I-84 west is mostly very good from the I-90 interchange all the way through Hartford, with a few bridge joints thrown in to keep you awake. West of Hartford there are a few mildly rough areas and ongoing construction, and approaching and going through Waterbury there is construction, and the road itself is in pretty rough shape for several miles. The State of CT has been working on I-84 for a couple of years now, and both sides are much improved from what you may remember from a few years back. For the time being, though, I will continue to use the I-691/I-91 detour to avoid some of the rough and construction areas between Waterbury and Hartford.

Once you get well west of Waterbury the road is in good shape, and continues so with few exceptions into New York State to Port Jervis.

US209 is mostly two lane blacktop. From Port Jervis it will take you along a commercial stretch and through downtown Milford PA, all in pretty good shape, and then down along the Delaware River for about 30 miles, through the Delaware Water Gap NRA. All of the road along the river is two-lane, but in excellent condition, even for large vehicles.
...more to follow.....

The State of CT has been working on I-84 since I was born!!! I can't remember a time in my life where some piece of I-84 hasn't been under construction. The Waterbury mess should've been done the last time they were making a mess in Waterbury, less than 10 years ago.

Anyhow, thanks for the road report John! Going to head south in a couple more weeks and good to know what folks are experiencing on different routes.
