Taking 695 round the east side of Baltimore (rather than the west) is much quieter, and you get beautiful views from the Key Bridge.

Here is the MD Transportation Authority Reg re propane.

The Transport of Hazardous Materials Across our Toll Facilities
Code of Maryland Regulations (COMAR) govern the transport of hazardous materials across our toll facilities. Under these regulations, vehicles carrying bottled propane gas in excess of 10 pounds per container (maximum of 10 containers), bulk gasoline, explosives, significant amounts of radioactive materials, and other hazardous materials are prohibited from using the Fort McHenry Tunnel (I-95) or the Baltimore Harbor Tunnel (I-895). The Francis Scott Key Bridge (I-695, the Baltimore Beltway) is a convenient alternative route for crossing Baltimore's Harbor.

I will be leaving from DE to Richmond. I will be be going by way of 50/301W. You will pay a high fee traveling 95 at Newark DE. If it was me I would take 301/50W thru DE and MD and cross bay bridge. Then on to 495 to 95.

I am about 10 miles south of Baltimore Listen to flybob use the Key Bridge or the Bay Bridge; the bay bridge route is a bit more scenic. The “rush hour” between Baltimore and DC starts at about 4 AM and runs to about 12 midnight

I did not use the tunnel, but heard a few New Yorkers and New Jersey people who do. My choice lately has been going thru PA, adds time, prettier sites.

FlyBob is correct. We drove from Charlotte, NC to south Jersey last summer and had to use the 695 bridge to avoid the Baltimore area tunnels.

I live south of Baltimore also and this is a gross exaggeration. Baltimore and DC from 10am-2 or 3pm are generally fine. And then again after 7pm-9pm after rush hour but before the road construction sets up. Even after 9pm generally is OK unless there is a major construction that squeezes things down to just 1 or 2 lanes.

That said, any precipitation from the sky turns the whole area into a cluster duck.

What the heck? Why is this a problem? Weighing propane tanks?

Seriously, I can't understand the question.

The law's the law- no propane allowed in the Bmore tunnels.
