The only other way I can go is across TappanZee bridge down route 17 to I80 to I95.

Those New Yorkers have a lot of trouble reading a tape measure! You'll be fine. Ten thousand other trucks will go right through there with you. I've been that route a lot, but I prefer the Tappan Zee. It's less traffic, stress, and potholes!

New York has some funny ways of measuring their bridge clearances.

It’s crazy! I just checked using google maps for the low clearance signs from the very overpasses they’re saying & nothing. Just a bunch of trucks in standstill traffic. I’m going to go thru the Tappan Zee & just be done with it. I came up that way & it’s just as you said. Lots less of everything! Thank you OS!

Yeah, 95 is just crazy in that area. I avoid it when possible. The traffic is moving so slowly through there, the beggars are standing on the white stripes between the lanes panhandling the motorists. Nobody moves fast enough to hurt them, so they can just wander right up to your vehicle while you're trying to navigate your way through.

I highly recommend the Tappan Zee personally.

IDK I don't mind that area. You just gotta hit it at the right time. As long as there's no accidents or construction it usually keeps moving. The main thing to remember about NY is to stay off Parkways. Interstates and most other major routes are normally ok.

Interstate:

Commercial trade, business, movement of goods or money, or transportation from one state to another, regulated by the Federal Department Of Transportation (DOT).
