Avoiding Traffic on the East Coast this Summer With Traffic Hacks
Here’s some good news, three major highway projects will be completed in time for your summer road trip! Though there is still the inevitable traffic you must face when hitting the road. With these traffic hacks, you’ll be able to get to where you want to go in a flash.
According to The Washington Post, those traveling south will be able to use the 95 Express Lanes, and those traveling Northeast will be able to experience the newly widened freeways.
Here are some traffic hacks:
Just north of Baltimore, the I-95 Express Toll Lanes are accessible for eight miles. While nobody likes the idea of paying a tolling fee at least this tolling system is all-electronic! Drivers have the option of paying with an E-ZPass or will be mailed a bill (a video will snap a picture of your license plate).
Those visiting the Eastern Shore will want to use the Bay Bridge on Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays before 10 a.m. and after 10 p.m. and Saturdays before 7 a.m. and after 5 p.m. Friendly reminder: Headlights should be on at all times on the Bay Bridge.
Those heading to Deep Creek Lake will want to avoid Frederick between the hours of 1 and 8:00 p.m. especially on Fridays, there are major roads that pass through a bottleneck creating really bad traffic.
The best way to avoid the summer traffic? Plan a staycation, you might be surprised to realize how much fun you can have right at home once you’re in a vacation mindset!
