I tried going from Harrisburg PA to Williamsburg VA on a holiday weekend using 301 and there was a loooong backup to the bridge (not so much the lights in mid-MD). Had way less backup taking west side DC Beltway to the Dulles Tollway to US 15 north (which is out of the way to Philly). So I'd be inclined to believe anymore the folks who say to just stick to the east side DC Beltway, and the B-W Parkway if traffic apps suggest it.

I took 301 and it turned out fine. No traffic at the bridge over the Potomac at all, must have been the right time of day. Hit a little traffic deeper into Maryland around Waldorf and Bowie, though (noting terrible). By the time I reached Baltimore, it was relatively smooth the rest of the way up to Philly.
