Ah, gotcha. And FYI, it's ~45 miles to Danbury, ~35 miles to Milford, and ~26 miles to Orangeburg from Greenwich. Personally I would've just driven the extra 20 miles to Danbury, little to no traffic or tolls.

That part of Route 1 is already congested. If anything, it keeps more people off the highways that would've driven to the Danbury or Milford areas to go to Lowes. Yes, some people really do prefer it over Home Depot that much.

The last way I took was 281 to 84 then got off in Danbury, but I forgot all about that Lowes.. it's kinda just out in the open.

How is the traffic on rt 7 now? It's been about 2 years since I taken rt7 but I remember when they did all that road work, I used to call it pushing dirt since that's all it seemed like they were doing at the time.

You forgot Derby. I love that Lowes. The Milford one is always a big cluster*uck.

I have not been to the Derby one, but have found the one in Milford just like any other Lowes I've ever been to. I go there quite often and it's just a mirror of the Danbury store I used to frequent. It's actually not busy at all, much less busy than Danbury - probably a result of them having 3 Lowes in a ~5 mile radius.

You're probably better off going up 684, just because it's quick and traffic-less. Route 7 is still slow (barely exceeding 35-40MPH all the way up, and stop lights), but the traffic has been drastically reduced with the widening.
