Drive time from Connecticut

Leaving for Newark airport on Monday May 12 for 11:45am flight. Plan to leave Connecticut (Fairfield county) about 8:30am. How is traffic this time of day/ Will we make it in 1 1/2 - 2 hours?

sounds like you are cutting it close. you should be at the airport around 10:15. that gives you less than 2 hours to get to the airport, if some traffice mishap occurs you are in trouble. i wouldn't leave any later than 8am. you just never know. even though you are going against the traffic....on the NJ side....

Just ask yourself this question - what would happen if I don't make it in time - that should determine how early you want to get to the airport.

Take RT 15 insteadof 95. and you are probaly better taking 87 through Rockland to the parkway to 21 to 3 back to the turnpike. When I go to Conneticut that is the fastest way. I have timed it before 95 is just traffic the whole way
