We'll be heading to the Boston area to do college visits soon and could use some driving advice. I am not sure that what looks like the shortest routes on mapquest will actually be the best routes once you figure in congestion and other local factors. Advice from local commuters would be greatly appreciated.
Here's our itinerary:
We'll be heading to Medford to see Tufts from Providence late morning (well past rush hour) on a Monday. So, the first question is what's the best route once off I-95?
Then, we'll head out of Medford at about 4pm (in the height of rush hour) and head toward Portland. Any suggestions for this leg, and any info on what we should expect time- and traffic-wise?
Thanks so much!
