Sorry, ramps from 87. I was scared that I'd be detoured again if I tried 90w.

If you have to go out 7, it's quicker and easier just to take 7 to 890 and over to 90 & 88 the way you you described. 7 has lots of traffic and several lights to go through

That's possible too, if there was an accident or something shutting 90 down

Cool. Thanks for all that helpful input.

From 87s to 88w you can take 90w and there is no toll assessed. Seriously, they give you a free pass for that segment. The toll on 90 is zero from 87 to exit 25A, which is I-88.

Thank you! This is how I drove once, and thought I was in trouble because I went through two toll gates, didn't know the toll was zero.

I'm revisiting this thread because there's something I left out, specifically in my response to these questions:

Not sure if you can legally bypass I-90 by staying on NY-7.
Do you know if we can stay on NY-7 between I-890 & Rotterdam?

I was traveling this route today, delivering to the Schenectady/Rotterdam store, when I remember something. There is an overpass for a now defunct railroad whose signage from both directions shows a clearance of 12'9. We go under this overpass on a daily basis. In fact, the company routing specifically mentions that it's safe to go under this bridge.

I know it isnt likely that any of you will go this way, but I thought I should point it out just for the record. Wouldn't want someone to come to that bridge and say "Dang it that Turtle didn't say anything about this!"
