Probably during the final week of this month I will be travelling from Newton MA to Wilmington DE (not sure of exact address yet). So far I have planned on 9 from Newton to I-84 (a bit on 49), and using the I-91 bit round Hartford... depending on the time of day I get there. Then pick up 209 through the Delaware Water Gap. Maybe follow that all the way to Jim Thorpe.
From there I would like to get to West Chester and Wilmington - without getting on an interstate / toll road. I have looked at 248 / 145 / 29 / 100 / 202. Is there a better choice? I am not looking for the quickest or shortest. I just want to know if there are any routes you know of, which I have not considered. Or if I am choosing any routes which from your knowledge are always congested.
And am I bypassing anything I should be checking out... anything which is of no great cost. (The budget was shot a few weeks ago!!)
