Alternate I-95 (Wash. to Richmond) route to Myrtle Beach

Jump to last reply

Hi Folks, coming from Canada, via I-81, looking for an alternate route from Gettysburg to Myrtle Beach, driving on a Saturday, will hit Washington around 3:30 - 4 PM. Last year (1st time) got caught in a massive traffic jam, though it was 1 PM. Research tells me this is normal for I-95 Saturdays.

Looking for an alternate route via google, without adding too many miles seems to be US 15 and US 17 to Falmouth/Fredericksbugh, VA, then getting back on I95. Will likely stop in Ashland for the night.

Questions: Does I-95 South between Washington and Richmond ever get better (any times). Does traffic ease around 4PM?

Will I bypass enough traffic by accessing through Falmouth/Fredericksburg (google adds about 25 mins to the journey) to warrant the detour?
