Tough to even take a guess at this question without knowing which routes you plan to use -- there is more than one option for getting from NYC to the Massachusetts-New Hampshire border where I-95 becomes your best route choice if you want to avoid congested coastal villages in New Hampshire and Maine and just get to Bath as quickly as possible.... For example, sections of I-90 (the Massachusetts Turnpike) are toll roads; as are parts of I-95 in Connecticut. Both will get you to I-495 or I-95 in Massachusetts, which are not toll roads.... If you can tell us your planned route, we may be able to make an educated guess as to what your toll costs might be.
Thank you so much for your quick reply. I'm definitely interested in the I-95 and I-495 options if they indeed are the best routes for avoiding potential congestion. With that in mind, what kind of costs do you think I'll be looking at toll wise? Obviously, I'll have to look into potential travel routes a little more of course. Thanks again for your input!
From NYC your best bet is to go over one of the bridges ($6.50) and take the Hutch/Merrit to 684 to Rt 84 to Rt 90 (Mass Pike). No tools on any of those roads. The Mass Pike to Rt 495 will only cost you a little over $1.00. Next toll is in NH and I think that's $2.00. Maine from York to Portland (295) is around $3-$4. Those are all w/out EZPass which will give you some discounts.
Not a complete list but whatever tolls I can remember on this route -
* GW Bridge - Current price??
* I-95 (Rye,NY) - Don't Remember
* I-84 to I-90 - $1.70
* I-95 New Hampshire - $2.00
* I-95 Maine(Wells,ME) - $2.00
* I-295 (Portland,ME) - $1.00
All the amounts are approx, I might be off by a dollar or two.
Just want to add that EZ Pass will not only save you some money, but will usually enable you to get through the tolls much more quickly. At busy times, the lines to pay can be quite long.
You guys are incredible! Thank you so much!!!
