    So, that's 4 hours to 5 hours roughly to GWB. Its almost noon now. You will hit the rush in NYC. If you leave at say 3, you will not hit so much a rush. But the evening flood of people will be coming out.

    Minor point of order, but "on the 8's" means :08, :18, :28, :38, etc...or every 10 minutes.

    Takes a extra hour/hour n 20 disregarding all traffic- but 90 west to 87 south to 287 is a calm ride with no traffic once you pass i84 on 90, til you get to bout i80 on 287.
    From your timeline prolly ain't a whole lot of actual difference in travel time.

    North Brandford TA would be one place, a old 76 there, Darien has a rest area at about 40 miles prior to the line on 95 in Conn. Secondi brothers would be another.

    Your problems will compound on the Q bridge in Conn rush and so on. I did a majority of runs that way through the GWB at night pretty much every time and by day when I must.

    As long as you can get through Ct before the mad dash to go home from the office, you're on the right path. I've gone through Hartford headed west that way recently and Ct was so clogged up with holiday traffic, I was some sorry I chose that trail. But sometimes there's just no good way out.
     
    Tb0n3 and x1Heavy Thank this.

    North Stonington, Ct. is a Pilot with a good amount of parking out back and all the necessities, first exit out of Rhode Island (93?) then there's a few service areas down through before you get to New Haven and the Q bridge, that TA in Branford is exit 56 but it gets filled up pretty fast early.

    Traffic's running smooth both directions on the new TZ bridge now. Crossed it twice in 3 hours last Monday.
