I-85 or I-95 GA/SC/NC/VA at Thanksgiving

Jump to last reply

We may need to drive to a relative's house at the crush of the Thanksgiving holiday and would like the choose the route that would be the lesser of two evils in terms of traffic.

I have used I-85/77/81 before between Georgia and Pennsylvania at that time and it was much worse than some of the other trips I have taken over holidays, so I was wondering if using I-20/95 might be a generally better or worse route than I-85? I know they will both be busy and no one can control accidents, but some roads are designed better and seem to handle traffic congestion better. I'm not familiar with I-95.

Also, I assume AAA is the best place to check for roadwork enroute to help in decision?

We can usually avoid driving on the crunch days around the holidays, but this year we just have to go a relative's house and we may not have much control over the time. Sigh...
I will owe my husband big for this one. They are my relatives.
