Traveling frm Bangor Maine to New Brunswick

Is it better to go across Us 9 or follow I-95. Rt 9 seems shorter. Are there any problems on Rt 9?

We made that trip a couple of years ago in a 40 footer with a toad. We were going to Nova Scotia via Moncton, NB. We went via I 95 and came back along the Bay of Fundy through St. Stephens. I 95 route is the same as I95.....limited access, divided 4 lane and very good road. The return route was very good also but was not an interstae type highway.
So........if you are in a hurry or just prefer limited access routes I 95 would be a better choice.

It depends on where in NB you are heading to. I find Google is very accurate for comaparing distances and travel times. If you end up travelling after dark, stay on the I95 and Route 2.

You do not say what type of unit you are travelling in.
We traveled Route 9 for 30 years until we retired and had all the time in the world.
Here is an alternate route to take if you are in no hurry and a little daring...
From Lubec, Maine cross the bridge onto Campobello Island, NewBrunswick.
You then take the Deer Island-Campobello Island ferry.
Then take the Letete-Deere Island ferry. Back on mainland.
We travelled in a 33 Class A RV. You just drive down the beach onto their small ferries, no docks. Campobello Island has some interesting history.

I lived between Bangor & Bar HArbor for many years. Rt 9 (locally referred to as The Airline) is a nice ride and much more direct to DownEast Maine, Nova Scotia and PEI (both awesome destinations).
