Alternate route around Fredricksburg

We will be driving to OBX, and spending the night at Red Rood Inn in Yorktown on June 15. Every year we dread driving through Fredricksburg due to the horrendous traffic jams. Is there another option in getting to Yorktown? We will be coming from NW PA.

This doesn't totally avoid Fredericksburg; however, we use this route when traveling through that area to go south. Pick up I81 in Hagerstown, MD, travel to exit 313B in Winchester, VA where you will pick up US 17 south to Fredericksburg and can then get back on I95. Another option is to exit I70 in Frederick, MD and pick up US 15 south to US 17 south into Fredericksburg and back on I95.

Use FlyEagle's directions, but instead of getting on I-95, stay on US 17 and it will take you all the way to Yorktown. A nice quiet drive most of the way and allows you to avoid I-95 and I-64.
