Best way to drive to Pittsburgh airport from NJ (central)?

Mapquest says take the Pa turnpike but just talked to someone who drove it and they hit a lot of construction. Is there a better way? Have hotel reservation at the airport there. We are leaving central Jersey around 4 or 5 this coming Monday.

Unfortunately, the PA Turnpike may be the best option if you are looking to make decent time. You could take Rte 30, whichis scenic ... but you are travelling after dark, and that route will slow you down considerably. Possibly 80 to 99 to 22 may work, but it really depends upon where in central NJ you are coming from. While there may be a lot of construction, usually the traffic keeps moving(though slowly), especially if you are going in the late hours. If you are coming from anywhere near 78, that may be the only other option. If that's the case, take 78 to Carlisle and pick up the Turnpike there. It is going to be a long drive nomatter how you do it. I drove across the state from south of Pgh to Westfield for about 16 years, and nomatter what I did it took 7 1/2 hrs.
