If you decide to do I81, at Roanoke, Va. follow 220S to Greensboro and down through Rockingham toward I95. Though there are more turns (assuming you have a GPS), the traffic is tremendously better and the distance and time are about the same as doing I81 to I77. I hate 77 going down the mountain from Va to NC and there are always wrecks plus I'm not a fan of going around Charlotte.

If I was. Coming from the island id go over the outer to 287n to78w to 81s to 15 to 270 695 to 95. Its about an hr longer for ya but you practically have no tolls and avoid all the dc and baltimore traffic. That's how I always do it. I usually leave jersey around 6:30 pm and stop toward va nc line for a nap

I just got back from florida. I took 81 to 77 to 26 to 95. I thought it was pretty good. Not many cities that way. Charlotte is better than DC. Except northern penn roads sucked pretty bad. I got on some concrete that pogoed me mercilessly The trailer starts hopping and then so do your kidneys. That combined with real gusty winds made the last two day pretty crappy.

Alot of construction on 95 right now through the Baltimore area. Should last until October. They say 28 different lane shifts during this period. Alot of lane shifting and lane closures right around the Ft McHenry tunnel. Use 895 and Harbor Tunnel instead. Some people are apprehensive about driving through the tunnels with a trailer. Use your best judgement. Living here, I can say, you can use 95 through the Baltimore/DC area during non-rush hour traffic hours. But don't get caught through here between 6am-9-am or 4:30pm-6pm. weekly. They also have an express freeway open now through this area. Don't use it. It charges you $1.75 (during peak rush) and $1.45 (during non-peak) to go 8 miles and unless there is a problem like an accident, it's a waste of money. It was designed to alleviate traffic through the congested area of 95/695.

Maryland has restrictions on Propane in the Tunnels, Go around Baltimore on the Key Bridge or Rt. 301.

Code of Maryland Regulations (COMAR) govern the transport of hazardous materials across our toll facilities. Under these regulations, vehicles carrying bottled propane gas in excess of 10 pounds per container (maximum of 10 containers), bulk gasoline, explosives, significant amounts of radioactive materials, and other hazardous materials are prohibited from using the Fort McHenry Tunnel (I-95) or the Baltimore Harbor Tunnel (I-895). The Francis Scott Key Bridge (I-695, the Baltimore Beltway) is a convenient alternative route for crossing Baltimore's Harbor.


Not sure what designates significant amounts of Radioactive Materials

Trip was good even with a blow out on 95 in SC which I got lucky it didn't tear up the camper. Then thankfully I stopped and grabbed another tire because I got a flat on the opposite side of camper in VA. Guy on a motor cycle told me before it got a chance to shred.

Just a tip if you are doing the drive down south gas up in VA and SC. The gas in NC is about 35 cents more a gallon.
