Question I-95 North through Baltimore

Hello, I will be traveling on I-95 passing through Baltimore. I have never done this trip. I'm in a diesel motorhome with a tow. I'm not familiar with Baltimore. I want to avoid any Baltimore tunnels.

Which is the recommended way to travel through Baltimore in a motorhome?

Take I-695 around the east side of Baltimore. Good road and traffic is not too bad. No tunnels.

Agreed - the thing to avoid in Baltimore, is Baltimore! Just like Richmond, DC, Philadelphia, NYC, and Boston. Take the loop, beltway, ring, whatever and save yourself some traffic and construction misery.

Like others, I prefer 695 ("the beltway") east, across the Key Bridge... unless the wind or the rain are strong, or both. In those cases, I have taken 695 west around Baltimore. That direction usually has a lot more traffic.

You also have the choice of leaving I-95 North at Washington D.C., and make your way east on the 495 "beltway" to 301/50 east. You'll cross the Chesapeake Bay Bridge near Annapolis. The drive on the Eastern Shore through rural MD and DE is wonderfully boring, compared with I-95.

If you decide to go that way 301 and 50 split some distance past the Chesapeake Bay Bridge. Stay left at that point to stay on 301 north. There is plenty of signage warning you in time to move left.
