Google Maps is showing me that 2 is preferred, but all 3 routes take within a minute or two of each other. So you might want to chose based on what you'll see en route, including meal options, if that works out with your timing.
Thanks for replying. I guess my main question has to do with the roads themselves. Rt 7 seems like more of a major road so I'm wondering if it will take much longer to go via 43(lots of local towns, traffic lights etc). By much longer, I mean an extra 20-30 mins.
Google gives you the estimated times, so unless there's an accident (possible, but unpredictable) on one of the routes, they all should take you about the same time.
Well you won't hit any metropolis on any of the three routes. I think that I would pick Route 2. The area is fairly rural and you should be fine with any choice you make.
Ok. Appreciate the responses.
pick rt2. Rt7 often has a lot of slow moving trucks.
I don't think any of them Is a divided highway in that area.
