We've driven I-81 end to end in both directions in our Class A. As others have said, there's a 14' minimum height requirement on the interstate highway system.

Will you be coming form Newark N.J. or Newark De? That can make a difference on where you pick up 81. We are from De. and last weekend we took this route but picked up 81 in Va. there ae different ways to go and sometimes better to avoid traffic.

No need to apologize. It just seems like some people's egos on this forum are a bit out of control.

It feels like it's been getting worse lately. I wish folks could take a deep breath and keep their perspective.

I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be

Good grief! Is the snark really necessary?

How about just answering the question with a real answer?

Geez Louise people! It was a simple question that required a simple answer, not sarcasm and ridicule. And we wonder why there are fewer and fewer people on this Forum. How about answering like this: If you are asking about I 81, it is an interstate - no bridge problems. instead? Thank you Vermilye (and the few others) for your respect and straightforward answers.

There are bridges along the 87 Northway southbound above Albany marked w/ clearance signs and 1 just west of Alb on 90 that is marked 14'. No problemino w/ a 13'6" rig with them.

I just drove that route last weekend and no issues with bridges, now remember all interstates should not have bridges under 14' and if so the will be marked. Our rig is 13'5" and have yet to have any issues on the interstates, now back roads and even state highways that's another story

I think one bridge in PA is marked 14' 2". When you get your oversize load permit they will tell you the route you must take.

From his other post, I take it this is enroute to 'Pigion' forge.

Interstate 81? No problems to be expected. It's a nice enough interstate highway overall, some nice scenery of rolling hills and not too many super congested cities (especially once one gets south of Pennsylvania).

Some other route 81? Please be more specific about what road you're actually referring to.
