Best Route from 95 in Maine to Cape Cod

I am hosting a Rally on the Cape Cod in May and some folks will be coming down from Maine on 95. I know that vehicles carrying propane cannot go through the Rt 93 tunnel in Boston. I'm looking for input on the best route to recommend to those participants. I know 495 is an option but I think that goes too far west only to head back east. Looking for advice from those that have traveled the route with 45 ft coaches with a toad.

Thank you

Use I-95/rt128th or the inner loop around Boston red instead of 495.....much shorter but much more traffic....C

We did this very route this last mid-October. Traffic - yes! But once we got to the Cape no issues.

Thank you. Not looking forward to going over the canal bridge with the curbs of death. Never in all of my traveling have I ever seen curbs of the likes that are in that bridge. About a foot tall and made of square edge granite.

Oh and I forgot to mention that the lanes are about 5 wide.

Don't even thing about staying just in the right lane.....use a bit of the left!!!! If someone doesn't understand they'll get over it.

Agreed. After a close call the first time I now utilize some of the left lane. I make sure far in advance that no one is beside me.
