I echo the Canton Hwy suggestion. They're supposed to widen 575 -- someday. Oh, and living in Woodstock is worth the trip. I love downtown Woodstock!
So....I guess you take canton hwy to 75....to 285, right?

If you go @ 6:30, what is your drive to the 75/285 intersection?

I live in Woodstock- To me it's growing too fast.There's like 30,000 people living in the subdivisions/downtown. I will admit I LOVE the downtown area, but there's so much construction and destroying forests, etc etc that it's seems like it's loosing it's charm. I live in Towne Lake, though, so I don't actually live in downtown Woodstock.

Anyhow, if you want to get to atl w/o the traffic jams, I also suggest Canton Road. I hope you like it here in Woodstock! if you do move into a subdivision, just a reminder that most of the houses around here have thin walls so your neighbors can hear any loudness from like 10 feet. And vice versa, too.

Thin walls? Do you mean they are not well built or is that a joke. We're looking in the Woodstock area from Fl. K

Also look at the GRTA express shuttles and Cobb CCT shuttle. They are pretty cheap. One of the GRTA shuttles leaves from Hwy 92 at His Hands Church (former Kmart lot). No charge to park. You get on and rest all the way to work. I work downtown ATL and live in Woodstock/Canton line. It is usually 45-60 minute drive if I leave before 7 a.m. Bentwater in Acworth is nice. I have friends who live there. There is a lot of traffic on Hwy 41 all the time in that area, however. 575 will be the worst of his traffic if you move to Woodstock but the rest is usually heavy but steady. I just put on the ipod and listen to tunes or podcasts. It is my alone time! Weirdly, I don't mind traffic.
