Friday's travels included a loop west on NY 17, back to Binghamton and then down I-81, I-476, I-80 and US 209, and then after dark a loop of US 6 into Connecticut and then back to Middletown on I-84.

Heading west on NY 17.

A short (approx. 2-hour) drive to Binghamton through some pretty country.

NY 17 is signed as Future I-86.

There are several speed limit variances on NY 17. In many spots the limit drops from 65 to 55 for no apparent reason. This doesn't include the surface four-lane areas, but the limited-access sections as well.

Pretty view along NY 17 on the southern fringes of the Catskills.

You can see in this photo that New York uses cable barriers in place of guardrail in many spots.

You can start to see snow piled up along the road. There were very few slick spots on the roadway, NYSDOT had done a good job of snow removal from a very heavy snowfall the night before.

Another Future I-86 sign.

Approaching the portion of NY 17 with at-grade intersections.

A few of the signs in this area feature yellow on brown.

Very pretty mountains. This area would be gorgeous in the spring or fall.

Long sweeping curve on a bridge.

NY 17 comes parallel with the Delaware River. The mountains to the left are in Pennsylvania.

Another area with at-grade intersections.

The at-grade section of NY 17.

There sure seems to be a lot emphasis placed on the Chesapeake Bay, even in states like New York that don't even border it.

West of NY 79, signage for I-86 appears intermittently.
