Are you coming down I95? Looks like you can pick up 301 right at the border of NC. If you are wanting the quickest easier route I usually come straight down I95 then take I26 to Charleston. The ramp for 301 past Santee has been closed for construction for a while. To get to 301 west you need to detour thru Santee if it is still closed.

I want to get off 95S to avoid the tunnel in Baltimore Md. I'm not sure what exit off 95 to 301.

Get off of 95 in Delaware right before the toll booth, Route 896 south and it will run you right into 301 south. There are some traffic lights thru the Newark area then scattered ones in Middletown but still a nice ride and less stressful then 95. I am actually driving that route today but northbound from right around Fort AP Hill.

JerseyJerry,

If you must avoid the tunnel, have you considered just using the beltway around Baltimore? I think you would have to get off 95 around Elkton, MD and then be traveling on small roads through small towns if you want to travel on Rt. 301. As long as you are not traveling during rush hour, the beltway would probably save you some time. The tunnel really isn't that bad.

You can check out the route options on Google Earth.

Good luck,
Don

JerseyJerry,

This is what their website says: "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."

Sounds a little archaic to me. I don't think many Rvs are sold today with only 10 gallon tanks. I have not towed through this tunnel, but have contacted other tunnels where I was towing and was told that my tanks ( two 30 pounders ) were ok, but they preferred to have the gas shut off while traveling through.

I would contact them directly to be sure. Here is the MDTA bridge police contact info: Tunnel Command
Fort McHenry Tunnel (I-95 from Caton Avenue to northern Baltimore City line) and Baltimore Harbor Tunnel (I-895)
410-537-1200
Commander: Capt. Richard Ricko

Hope this helps,
Don
