Default We live in Lawrenceville. Go to Alpha every wknd.

My MIL lives in Alpharetta off of Winward.
We take Sugarloaf to 120 west. through Duluth.
Catch 141 to Medlock Bridge.
Left onto Mcginnis Ferry. Johns Creek area I believe.
Follow McGinnis to Winward or continue on McGinnis to Highway 9.
Without traffic it takes 50-60 mins everytime. Without fail.
With traffic Could be 90+ mins.
Return would be longer. I cringe when I see that mess of a traffic on Mcginnis ferry coming back home, when I am driving to Alpharetta in the evening. Good Lord. Miles and Miles of slow moving traffic. If the ppl could only see their own expressions. I told my wife they'd have to pay me NYcity type of money to wait in that mess.

Default Up 400: Sandy Springs Police

I went up 400 the other day to Exit 8 (Mansell Rd) and there were about 8 Sandy Springs Police Cars. Guess the "New City" is making their revenue. Used to be guilty of rolling about 80MPH up 400 with every other car! Watch out if your route includes 400!

Thanks for all the replies. I guess I am not going to take the job. That is just too much time to spend in the car everyday, especially when I have a three year old (and a husband) I want to spend time with.

The shortest route I found was 31 miles each way, and with a gas guzzling Navigator and daycare I would be working for almost nothing.

Thanks again.

There would be no way I would do that commute. If you like your sanity, don't even attempt it. Friday afternoons 10+ years ago from Roswell (south of Alpharetta) to Stone Mountain (closer to 400) was 2+ hours. Can't imagine now.

Ha-ha. I know this is really old now, but yes, that was me.

Of course, as soon as I had my child in July, I stopped making that ridiculous commute. Now I work from home. Sweet deal!
