Which road do you suggest rd 140 or 97 from Westminster to Gettysburg. Leaving early in the day.
Considering that Route 140 doesn't really go to Gettysburg, I'd take Route 97; it's a straight line and a 40-minute drive.
35 years ago, 140 did go to Gettysburg and 97 didn't, but the route numbers were flipped to make 97 go only south to north, and 140 go only east to west. 97 goes in a kind-of straight line from the District of Columbia, past my house, to Gettysburg.
I’m also in agreement with taking 97. Very easy to follow, somewhat rural, and not an over abundance of traffic. There is some construction between Littlestown and Gettysburg, but nothing major that would cause much of a delay.
I agree but if you want a different route back, then take 134 (Harney Rd) to Taneytown and 140 to Westminster. Great drive and maybe extra 5 minutes
