Travelling to Midwest for Holidays (MD, PA, W. Va portion)

I am going to Rock Island, Ill for Thanksgiving possibly and would like info on speed traps or where to be more vigilant. I know don't speed and I won't have to worry about tix.
My route as it applies to this regional forum:
MD: 270 to 70 to 68 into W. Va
W. Va: 68 to 79 into PA
PA: 79 to 70 into back into W. Va to OH (I could also take 70 out of MD to PA Turnpike @ Breezewood. Take PA TP to W. Va then OH.

For the curious the rest of the trip will take me through Columbus to Indianapolis on 70. Then on 74 in Indiana and Illinois to 80.

If you think taking through PA 76 to 80 all the way across is better, let me know. I did both on google maps and the time diff is minimal. The only diff is $25 in tolls.

I270 is no problem during rush hour as the police want to keep traffic moving - otherwise you may want to keep it to no more than 10 mph over the posted limit. I haven't found much radar on I68 in MD, but it's always a possibility.

I realize you can't use it in VA & DC, but a good radar detector may be your best answer - they've saved me a bundle over the years. I use a battery powered Escort so it can be easily removed when crossing into DC or VA.

Have a good trip.
