I知 considering moving from Central NJ to Delaware for a job in MD (Aberdeen Proving grounds). I知 interested in North of Wilmington. From Google maps it looks like about 50 miles and 1 hour drive down I95. I'm trying to understand the real rush hours down and through Wilmington (via I95) and also past Wilmington into where 95,295 and 495 come together. What times in the morning going south that are bad and going north in the evening. For example if I hit the Wilmington area from the north by 6:30 AM will I beat the traffic? How about on the evening rush?

Hey CentNJ....I dont' live in Noth Wilmington but do have an idea what you are talking about. We have driven the I-95 route to VA many times and traffic most of the time is a nightmare during rush hour.
Of course, I understand you will have to only go 50 miles or so. That is not too bad but if you hit it when there is a jam, could take twice as long or even more.
Anyone else have two cents to throw in?

You actually might be ok doing that drive. For both commutes you will be going the "opposite" direction of the bad traffic. You could always learn the back alternate routes should traffic get back (40 through Havre de Grace, etc).
