Road Trip to North Carolina

I don't think there's anything wrong with I-85, although perhaps the hassle of getting to its starting point could be a factor. But if you ask for directions on a road forum, people will give multiple alternatives. Certainly Route 360 carries less traffic than I-85 does, so in terms of a quieter, relaxed drive that might be a factor depending on one's preferences, and you do get to see the interesting set of shields where US-360 intersects VA-360.

^ Oh, for sure. US-360 is a road I’ve been meaning to clinch though I unfortunately don’t see myself getting to it anytime soon.

Leave NJ at 5am, take I-95 and 85 and you'll be fine.

02 Park Ave:
I want to thank everyone for their advice.

Unfortunately, due to an illness down there the trip had to be cancelled.

I had planned to stop at Maryland House to check Google Maps for conditions ahead to make a preliminary decision on the route to take.  Then I would listen to traffic reports on WTOP to make my final decision as I approached the District.

 I expected that I would be taking US 29 though.
