    Hey all... I'm trying to figure out if I am going to hit a lot of traffic on Good Friday from northern VA to NY. If so, I'll probably just take Amtrak but I'm new to this area and unfamiliar with the traffic trends.

    I'd be leaving Friday morning (the 21st) around 10:30 AM.

    Is this usually a trafficky day along this route?

    Thanks!

    Good luck! Any holiday weekend (including Fridays) is bad news for driving in that area. I don't know what prompted you to move there but I wouldn't wish that on anyone! (I grew up in NoVA).

    haha... I'm working down here. But it's back to NY for me in the not too distant future.

    Are you going northbound? Usually on fridays southbound (DC -> NoVA) is pretty bad but going the opposite direction isn't. I don't seem to remember good friday making traffic any worse.
