How was traffic for everyone who travelled this Thanksgiving? I'll start it off... my fiance and I travelled to NYCNJ. It's roughly 230 miles, give or take. We debated about which route to take. Ultimately, we decided on I-90 (Mass Pike) to I-84 to I-87 (Garden State Pkwy). We left on Wednesday night at around 4:00 PM. The trip on the Mass Pike is around 60 miles. It took us all of three hours to go those 60 miles. It then took another 3 to finish the trip. Keep in mind, this normally takes around 4 hours. The ride home was an even worse story... We left Jersey at 2:00 PM and didn't make it back to Boston until 9:30 PM. It took us 2 hours to get from Montclair, NJ, to across the Tappan Zee brigde. Once we finally got onto I-84, it took 3 hours to get through Connecticutt (should take about an hour and 15 mins). It then took about an hour and a half on the Mass Pike. Trip there (230 miles)- I-90 to I-84 to I-87- 6 hours Trip back (200 miles)- I-87287 to Tappan Zee Bridge, to 684 to 84 to 90- 7 and a half hours Was everyone else's trip as long as this?
