I'm driving from DC to Boston (actually, Billerica, MA) on Mon, July 29. I'll probably leave the DC area (I'm in a MD suburb just outside the Beltway) around 7 am.
First, does anyone have any info on major construction that would make an otherwise plausible road choice a big no-no?
Second, here are the choices I'm not sure about
* NJ: should I just take the turnpike? (I don't care about tolls)
* NYC: various commenters on the net say that it's not a good idea to try to plow through the city via the GW Bridge. Should I take the Tappan Zee instead?
* Merritt Pkway to 91, or 684 to 84?
