Rt. 95 thru NC, SC and Ga.

Heading south from NJ to Fl. leaving NJ 12-28. My concern is the condition of Rt.95 from Emporia, Va. south, detours, etc.
Thanks for your help, safe travels.

Don't know of any detours, but you will run into construction areas from time to time. I have never traveled I-95 that I wasn't held up at least once due to a wreck or two. Prepare for it. I live on the GA coast.

It's been several years since I traveled that route but I do remember one low clearance on 95 in I think NC. At 12' 6" in the motor home we were in we did not have to detour but I am not sure what the height limit was. The only thing you have to do is take the exit and go straight back on if you are to tall.

I should add that my concern has to do with the floods last fall and the road closings they caused. We traveled 95, down and back last winter.
Thanks again.

The flood stuff and all that is pretty much cleared up. Barring anything unusual, you should see no issues all the way down.

Just did Richmond VA to Jacksonville FL on 95. No problems at all. Worst portion, pulling a FW, is 295 around Richmond which is very rough, and most of SC, also rough. By that, I mean some chucking, etc.

We went from I-40 in NC to Orlando on I-95 just before Thanksgiving and it was open the whole way down and back. I don't recall anything other than the typical construction that is always going on on some stretch of the road.

95 south is just fine, there are some areas under construction with some butt puckering concrete walls close to your lane, and some rough road with grooves and potholes... More annoying than menacing though. You'll make it but you wont enjoy the trip down. Good luck, Have Fun, Be Safe
