It's about 50 minutes with no traffic from York to the end of I-83 in downtown Baltimore. Yes, like many major cities, we have heavy traffic during peak periods, so the trip can be exceptionally longer then. Since so many people like your friend thought themselves to be so brilliant and moved to York County there are now lots of capacity issues along I-83 as a result.

There is always traffic during rush hour in both directions on I-83, and it's only going to get worse as the population increases and more people do the PA to Baltimore commute. And with gas prices rising (and they will), that lower cost of living isn't really lower anymore.

83N/S happens. It is quite disheartening when the Amish buggies are moving faster than you are.
