Did that years ago, heading from Bayville to Boothbay. Never again, at least not during hours when there is much traffic!!! Any local alternate route is still problematic for you. My suggestion is that you leave home around midnight on Sunday to avoid the traffic. By around 5 AM you should be near New London, where you can pick up 395 (just to the West of New London) to 90 to 495 and then back to 95, avoiding Hartford, Worcester, Providence and Boston. Have fun.

If you do this again take 395 in New London and follow into Mass. Then pick up 290 it take you to 495. You have no expensive tolls and trying to merge at the end of 90 to 495 with a trailer is hell. If you hit it at a bad hour you will sit for what seem forever. It is a major break of for Maine and Cape Cod. We live in Ct and when we go to Maine we go this route. You do pass by Worcester, it is not that bad, they have done some inprovements.
