Hello,

I would that you get in touch with the bike coordinators for the states
in which you will be traveling through. The bike coordinators have a
wealth of information that they can distribute for no charge. Most every
state publishes a bicycle map of their state that they will send out for
free....and while the maps aren't as detailed as ours, they generally
offer suggested roads for cycling through their state. Some states,
such as Colorado and Wisconsin, have outstanding information, while
other states are much simpler. But every little piece of information can
help. Here is a link to the contact information for all of the bicycle
coordinators:

I hope all of this has helped.

Not sure about the routes on the Eastern end, but both PA & NY have designated bicycle routes that might be of use:

Your trip has two things going for it. Northern PA is fairly scenic and pleasant cycling and you will have virtually no cities or even major towns to skirt. I avoid major cities unless I have to get something done. I have cycled northwest PA and did just fine. You will have some climbing but nothing like western NY state (The Finger Lakes region is very tough). Going straight east to Connecticut should be a very nice ride. Wouldn't mind doing it myself.
