Is this a good alternative to relief traffic from I-95? I hate toll roads but i will use this one if I have to if traffic is backed up on there.

If it's a prime time to head to the beaches (Friday & Saturday), US 50 ain't gonna be any better.  Otherwise, it shouldn't be too bad.

I-95 should get the express lanes extended from white marsh to Delaware. So I gused I-95 is better to use.
I-95 badly needs capacity between Baltimore and Delaware. It drops from 8 lanes to 6 lanes at the MD border toll plazas with no change in traffic volumes. It is always congested and often moves below the speed limit in the 6 lane section. If that requires toll lanes to get it built, so be it. Better than the status quo.
(Or finish the US 1 freeway from PA to Bel Air. But that's fictional now.)

After the lane drop at MD 24, traffic normally picks up shortly thereafter until the Susquehanna River Bridge and toll plaza.  Maybe instituting cashless tolling will help?

Speaking of that, I'm not sure why Google Maps doesn't have a street view on it.

The agencies that maintain the bridges and tunnels in NYC do NOT like photography of their crossings.  They probably had Google take it down.  At one time they were even harassing tourists taking pictures from parks and whatnot.

IIRC, George Washington Bridge is maintained by New Jersey, not MTA.

That sucks that there's restrictions. They are like India where they say NO to street view.

I'm pretty sure PANYNJ is not too happy about photography either.  The same thing happens with the Outerbridge and Bayonne Bridge.

Do you have a source for India banning GSV?

Actually, it's maintained/managed by the PANYNJ.

^ In part because PANYNJ has jurisdiction over all crossings on the lower 25 miles of the Hudson.

All river crossings between NJ and NY, PA & DE are maintained by bi-state or independent agencies.  The only exception may be the NJ/PA Turnpike Bridge, in which case each agency does routine maintenance on their side of the bridge, and the NJ Turnpike Authority executes control over large-scale projects, with the PTC kicking in 50% of the cost.
