Suggested routes from Williamsburg, VA to Burlington, VT

Hi, am looking for recommendations for interstate/expressway route(s)

to Burlington from the Hampton Roads, VA area. The timeframe is the latter part of October.

We took this trip several years ago, and were curious if there are any new roads or closed roads this time around.

Thank you.

All the major interstates are still here. Rt 91 north is open for travel.

I recently drove up I-87 to northern VT and was pleased with the experience in terms of both scenery and speed. There are several options to get from there to Burlington by land or by ferry across Lake Champlain.

FYI, this useful link was posted on TA.

It appears that 7 is back to normal.

I realized I should have dropped the ferries link in too.

There were and are no issues on Route 7 between Rutland and Burlington. It is wide open! There are only a couple of small road closures in the whole state at this point, nothing that would be a barrier to a visitor.

Big_Foof -many thanks for the helpful ferry link. Found out "our" ferry stops running 10/5 which is before our trip, so guess we will take the Essex ferry. Previously we had taken the Burlington Ferry and enjoyed it, but you always discover something new by doing things a little differently on the road.

Variety is the spice of life or something like that!

Thanks...
