We will be headed back to Ohio in early April from Florida. We have 2 routes close to same time/distance. First is I-75 and alternate is I-95 to I-26 to I-77 to Cleveland. I-75 is more direct, but I hate the heavy truck traffic on it. We are going from Ft Myers to Marblehead, Ohio. Also considered angling northeast and taking 321/301 to Charlotte then I-77.
So here’s the question? Any thoughts on potential traffic on these routes? We will be on the road April 8-10. Not sure what to expect with all this Covid stuff.
Thanks, Jim

The roads have seemed to be like a ghost town so would be surprised if you saw traffic anywhere.

As I still drive out that way fairly often (and was over there yesterday) ...

I-75 through Dayton: Very few cars, a few service vehicles, and LOTS of trucks. Even more trucks than usual, I think. Same on I-70 in IN and OH.

We have found, over 19 years of traveling down to Florida and taking several different routes, that I75 all the way worked best for us. It is all good smooth pavement and not too many construction areas anymore.

Not quite the same route, but some overlap.

A week and a half ago we drove from Panama City Beach over to catch the I-95 to avoid Atlanta and thought of overnighting in Georgia. Traffic from the point where we got on the I-95 up to Santee SC where we ended up stopping for the night was brutal; hours of stop and go, with The Great Migration going on.

The next day we opted to grab the 26 and I-77 up to the I-81. Traffic moved well on the 26 and I-77. The I-81 got pretty busy in PA as well.

Also, campgrounds were full so I'd suggest booking ahead if you plan to stay in one.

I hope this is helpful

Just ran 75 from Atlanta to Dayton last week. Ran the speed limit plus with absolutely zero slow downs anywhere. Traffic downtown Atlanta didn't even amount to anything. The only construction that looked like it could cause an issue is downtown Cincinnati.

S Carolina Parks are not taking any new reservations as of today until May 7. You can only camp if you already have a reservation! You may want to check other states at this time.

With the Covid around traffic is down all over. We live near Canton and do the 75-301-95-26-77 from Zephyrhills home. The campground at the Charlotte Speedway was still open and a good spot to stop
