Usually, when driving from lower Manhattan to Northern VA on Friday, the 'rules' to avoid congestion (as much as possible) are clear. However, next Friday is Good Friday, so I wanted to know if perhaps there would be changes or less traffic?

Normally I would want to leave Lower Manhattan between 10-11 so I can hit the beltway before 2:30 and be on 66 no later than 3.
OR I would wait until 7 PM to leave Lower Manhattan.

Wondering about Good Friday, if I can alter or even ease up and leave maybe 12, 2, or 4 and not get nailed?

Yeesh itíll be long. The entire corridor from Washington to Boston is congested regularly, nevermind Good Friday afternoon. The only positive is many people have Friday off so Thursday may be worse.

Leave Friday morning if you can, to be safe.

Well that is why I was asking....a regular Friday afternoon, if you can leave after AM rush but hit the beltway before 2, and 66 before 3, you will be fine.
Good Friday though, I wonder if I still need to take off the mid morning or afternoon; or if I can leave later (2 or 4 PM) and be fine.
