From Pittsburgh Pennsylvania what's the best way to avoid the Bay Bridge?Submitted by Douglas K, Pittsburgh PA on June 8, 2020
If you take Karl's suggested route you can save some time by having an EZPass. You will have approximately $14 in tolls versus $4 crossing the Bay Bridge. I95 is an easy drive and driving down route 1 lets you see all the Delaware Beaches. Plus there are plenty of places for food, gas and bathrooms.
You can take a route pass Harrisburg into the Lancaster area then take Rt 1/13 down into Delaware to Ocean City.
Another option if your worried about crossing the Bay Bridge there is shuttle service that will drive your vehicle over the bridge for you called the Kent Island Express. The number is 410-604-0486.
