Southbound on US15 question

Is it faster to stay on US15 through WPort at about 3-4PM, or should I take the I180 bypass around town, take the short jog on I80, then pick up US15 again? I know that's longer mileage, but don't know about the time.

This is today, BTW, sorry. But I suppose it's good info to know anyway.

If you are going straight through on US15 from north of Williamsport and continuing on US15 south of Williamsport, just stay on US15. US15, 180 & 220 actually run together around Williamsport and then split off. (Just don't take any exit that may say business US15 that would take you into town, that would be unnecessary.) Williamsport is not that big a city and there should be no problem with traffic.

Would the same be true heading north on US 15? Do you save time going way around on I-180 versus traveling on Route 15 through Williamsport?

I drove to/from Williamsport for years and never went around on I-80. I always stayed on US 15 in both directions. Traveling north, as you enter Williamsport, sometimes the traffic can back up just slightly to make the turn onto US 15 north; however, the wait time is minimal.
