    I want to take I-84, but I am unsure about County Road 1 off of exit 4 in NY.

    UPDATE:

    I called the receiver, and they said CTY-1 allows trucks.

    I just looked at the County Rd 1on Google satellite nothing to fancy about just an old county road. It looks pretty straight forward. I highlighted a few spots along the route. I would take it. All the best in your travels.

    County Road 1 is named Pine Island Turnpike. That name tells me it would be ok for trucks. If it's not, there will be a sign near I-84 or US 6.

    I seen some roads in Pa and that area called Turnpikes and would not want to take a truck on some of them. They had turnpikes in this country in the late 1700s and I think some of those Pa roads were probably the same ones. lol

    CR 1 in NY looks like a good road.

    I worked for a carpet distributor many many moons ago. I remember one of the other drivers who covered that area always complained when he had Pine Island on the truck...something about being in the middle of nowhere...I don't recall going there myself...
    I wouldn't worry about it if I were you, I'm sure the roads are much better nowadays;)

    I just went through CTY-1, or a section of it. I accidentally went off route and ended up on NY-284. I was supposed to turn right and immediately turn left to stay on CTY-1. Worst part is that there is no turn-around there.

    Anyway, the roads were okay with lots of hills and curves. I was doing 30-45 through there.

    I used to bang around over in that area doing LTL. I thought 284 in NY had a truck restriction of some sort. (Been awhile.) There is a sign on 80 eastbound near the T/A exit in NJ warning about it.

    There is a 10 ton restriction except for local deliveries. I accidentally made a wrong turn.
