I'm trying to decide on the best route:
A) US-301 to Waldorf, continue on MD-5 to the beltway, and then either I-95 or BW Parkway up to Baltimore and through on I-95 up to Delaware/New Jersey. This is the Google Map recommended version (on the BW parkway); however, I'm worried about traffic at 4pm.
B) US-301 to Waldorf, continue on US-301 up to MD-3, and I-97 to the Baltimore beltway and harbour tunnel to I-95 up to Delaware/New Jersey. Hits all of the stoplights on US-301 and MD-3, but hopefully would have less traffic.
C) US-301 to Waldorf, continue on US-301 across the Bay Bridge and then up US-301 to US-40 and over into New Jersey. Swaps the smaller Bay Bridge toll for the Baltimore / I-95 tolls; longest route but theoretically no significant traffic once over the bridge.
In any event, I intend to run US-40 down to Atlantic City and not run I-95 up to the start of the Atlantic City Expressway since I'm gun-shy about getting that close to Philadelphia traffic.
Any suggestions as to the best option?
