I took the Chesapeake Bay tunnel/bridge today, very beautiful I just say. Plus it was a nice and clear day after I got out of the fog in NJ.

Jamie, I've gone the same route once. Just makes you happy you get to be a truck driver to see such awesome sights. As JYK9 recently observed, it's a beautiful country!

What did it run you? Not sure why more drivers don't go this way if they are heading along the coast just to avoid Baltimore and DC traffic.

With an EZPass traveling one way, it costs $39 for five axles.

Is $39 a good price? I have no idea. Wherever I go FXF pays the toll.

Oh it saved me a lot of time, going across Us13 over I95 during morning Rush hour. No idea how much it cost, since I have an easy pass provided by Schneider. But they must have the navigo setup to avoid the Chesapeake Bay, because anytime it rerouted, it kept telling me to turn around. It would rather have me back track 300 miles then go this route. But I went that way anyways since it cut 100 miles off my trip.

The only downside is the speed limit being 55 most of the way, but then it goes down to 35-40 a few times if I remember correctly.

I could have! But I literally had no extra time, due to being delayed at the shipper I made my appointment time with 5 minutes to spare. rofl-3.gif

The customer who is shipping the freight. This is where the driver will pick up a load and then deliver it to the receiver or consignee.

Interesting, I drove a truck across this once back in 1993. Very cool (and somewhat scary) to experience. I very clearly recall paying a $40 cash toll because I only had $40 in my pocket.

That's a mighty nice route....I've gone that way a bunch of times. We just need to be sure to check what the wind speed is beforehand; that bridge becomes very dangerous when it is windy, especially if we're not heavily loaded.
