    It looks like I must choose between hills or construction.

    Run through the hills. I would take US33 out to I-77. US35 seems to be closed about half the time I try to run it.

    That's the route I would take, but admit that is mostly because that's the route recommended by my company. US 35 isn't bad, some 70mph, 60mph and very short 55mph through single lane Mason WVA. Ample truck stops and rest areas along that stretch. Avoid the Pilot in Nitro off 64 if you can.

    WVA turnpike does take ezpass, but no clue how much it is. The price for cars is like $2 at the 3 toll plazas so 5 axle shouldn't be too crazy.

    I think all together it is $18

    When was the last time you were on 35?. I am on there nearly every week and never had anything but smooth sailing.

    That's what I remember too. It's pretty much an Interstate tier highway. I've never been further southeast than Chillicothe OH though.

    Was on there Wednesday morning. Closed for one hour due to a wreck on the two lane part.
