Help Route Newark NJ to Southern CT

I need help routing through Newark New Jersey and into Southern Connecticut pulling my 25í FC. I recall the last time I did this I went over a very costly toll bridge. I believe it was the George Washington Bridge. Any help is appreciated to avoid the larger tolls as well as the hyper-congested areas.
Thank you in advance!

Where in southern CT? 287 and the Tapanzee bridge are fine. Anywhere east of New Haven and heading up to 84 before or after the Tapanzee is also a good option.

The 2 time we have done this from Delaware we have taken the Garden State Parkway to 287, crossed into CT via the Tappan Zee and merged onto I-95 and headed East. Safe travels.

Garden state parkway to Tappan Zee bridge to 684 to 84 will get you to Danbury, CT.

Thank you for the reply. Tappan Zee seems to be the consensus. Now just need to get my timing right to avoid the traffic.

The GWB is do-able very early on a Sunday morning IMO. It may save you time/miles on both sides.

At other times . . . joining the chorus for the Tappan Zee to I-287 and I-95.

BTW using EZ Pass will save you a lot on tolls. Here is the NYS form to get one to include your two-axle AS:

https://www.thruway.ny.gov/ezpass/ta-w68176.pdf

The NJ DMV may have its own rules/forms. If you already have an EZ Pass account, a simple phone call may get the correct tag mailed you.

Good luck,

Peter

jonnie3....The Garden State Parkway to Rte 287 to the Tappan Zee Bridge, then Rte 287 to Rte 95 is the way to go. Keep in mind that the all-knowing-super duper great governor of NY has renamed the Tappan Zee Bridge to his father's name. The new name is the Governor Mario M. Cuomo Bridge (MCB), so you may see signs identifying the same bridge with two different names.

There is only so many ways to cross the Hudson River, the GW Bridge has reduced fares during off peak hours. Google fares George Washington Bridge.

It really warms my heart to hear it called the Tappan Zee Bridge instead of the Andy Cuomo Bridge. It will always be Tappan Zee to most NY'ers.
