Hmmm... that is interesting. I-87 turns into the New York State Thruway. Take that to Exit 23. Which will take you right onto I-787. Which of course is farer south of I-90 exit. So, you will be getting onto I-787 coming from the south instead of from the east.Originally posted by Diceman
If you come over on 80, ya might consider going north on 81 towards Wilkes Barre-Scranton to 84, up to 87 to 787 to NY and finally route 7 into Beenietown VT.
Check it out.
That's our route, I been up that way a lot and I think it is the fastest and it's all highway. [/B]
If you get on to I-787 from the south then the Hudson River will be on your right and downtown Albany will be on your left.
Botton line again is that you have to get to NY Rt.7. There is no easy way to get around downtown city of Troy. So stay the course and just follow NY Rt.7 until you get to VT.
At Albany the NYS Thurway(I-87) takes a hard left and becomes I-90. I-87 continues north but it is called the Northway which is toll free.
OH!! that is why I-88 is better than I-87. It is toll free. Both I-87 & I-90 out of Buffalo are toll. I-88 is the ticket. Free plus it is a pretty ride.
