NJ to Florida Restrictions

Any road restrictions I need to be aware of heading from NJ to Florida ? I know the tunnel near Baltimore has a bulk propane sign. Does that apply to travel trailers? I see MH's going thru there all the time.

I was under the impression that all propane was not allowed, but after reading online I see that it is limited to 10 gallons per cylinder, up to 10 cylinders. 30# bottles hold 7.1 gallons when full, so I guess under the laws you are allowed.

They should be off when passing through the tunnels as CBBT makes you stop and confirm they in the off position.


Propane Regulations

Other than that I don't see any restrictions as it is mostly open highway from there south.

I have yet to tow down 95 south of Delaware as I use 1, 113, 13 or I81.

DC is brutal!

I didnt bother with trying to go thru the tunnel and have them stop me and turn me around cause of the propane,i went around the tunnel,i passed thru there early in the AM and had no issues,on my way home i went thru during rush hour and was hit by a DD damaging truck and trailer,try to avoid that area around high traffic hours its terrible and people drive like a%sholes.

From North Carolina to Florida I know of no restrictions. Have made that trip a couple of times. 95 in SC is getting better, they are forever working on the road through that state. If you have a CB radio, keep it on 19. It saved me a 4 hour back up one trip. Truckers were telling each other the detour around the problem. Took me about 10 miles out of the way, but really saved time. And since OTR Trucks were using it, me and my TT would be ok as far as heights and weights.

If heading south of Jacksonville FL, Use the 295 bypass and head toward the beach. It is the newest road and has less traffic than going around the other way. Going through Jacksonville is not recommended.

Coming home, 95 will bottle neck leaving GA heading into SC. It drops from 3 lanes to 2 at the bridge crossing the Savannah River. You will start backing up just north of Savannah.

3'senough, I believe you misread the Regs. It is 10 Pounds per cylinder.

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.

Use the Key Bridge or use I 95 to Delaware Rt 1 to Rt 896 to rt 301 south to rt 50 back to DC Beltway. Scenic and not much traffic

Is that 695 East or is there a sign for the bridge, the other direction is the big loop towards Frederick?
