The link below will give you plenty of options for Smartphone Apps, for traffic. I personally use WAZE.

Best of luck.

Peter, I just drove a good chunk of I-84 eastbound in the past 2 weeks. Here's a quote from my answer to another post in this section just tonight:

>>>..We joined I-84 near Milford, PA, and found it to be in rough condition also. As soon as you transition into NY, the condition improves greatly for that stretch, but upon entering CT the road once again becomes very unpredictable until you pass Hartford. East of Hartford to the Mass line is better, but still rough at the bridge joints. I-90, Mass Pike, is in good shape eastbound until you get south of Worcester, about Exit 10, then it too is a bit rough to I-495. We exited at I-495, so I can't comment on I-90 farther east. I-495 is good in both directions.

I-84 is a pretty rough road through most of PA and CT. They like to blame the recent harsh winter, but the fact is they have been negligent in their design and maintenance for years, and now this tough (but not unheard of) winter has bitten them in the butt. If I had to make the trip again, I would consider continuing on I-81 to I-88, and thus joining I-90. But, I don't know the condition of I-81 much north of Harrisburg, nor the condition of I-88 at all. This route would add even more miles. Also, I-90 in both NY and MA, although in very good condition for the most part, is a toll road, and a moderately expensive one at that. So, you'd have to do some more checking before deciding that for yourself...<<<

Hope this helps.

Each state has a Dept of Transportation. On-line you get road conditions and some time by phone,

We just drove it Eastbound on the 10th. It's bumpy; it always is, but it wasn't too bad this time. We run 110 lb in the front tires; we feel them all.
