Two options, both involve the Eastern Shore.

301 S, over the Bay Bridge. No toll westbound. Continue 301 S over the Potomac & then whatever after that. 301 continues to more or less parallel 95 but is a real nice, quiet, 4 lane road for a long way.

The other is 13 S through DE & on to the CBBT to Virgina Beach. Who told you no propane on the CBBT? They are WRONG. Done it many times. SB, pull over just before toll at N end & turn the propane off. That is all that is required.

The trip over & under on the CBBT is an experience all by itself. 20 miles of bridge & 2 deep tunnels.

It’s easy getting through the Norfolk/VA Beach area and onto 58. Go down the US 13, and leave I-95 alone. You will never be near Richmond. I have a home in Baltimore and one in Durham also. Need help, I live and travel this route often and have for years.

Traffic Volume, is what makes a heavy slog. No avoiding it in the Bos-Wash. It’s fatiguing as hell.

So, unless you’re set on destinations in those areas, IH81-S to IH64-E is the way around & past (use Richmond bypass).

Longer is better.

(Staying on 81 farther south is a crapshoot).
