I have to go to Bojangles Coliseum tomo morning and will be traveling from Union County. I looked on Google maps & it seems I could take Providence Road (16) up and cut over on Wendover or I could take 485 to Independence Blvd. I have to be there at 7:30 and am not completely familiar with the neigbhborhood areas. Is one way better or worse or safer than another?
Thanks.

Either way will have inbound traffic, although not so much because you're coming in earlier than rush hour. I'd go Independence, since it will probably be moving faster for more of your trip. When you see the BOCO on your left, the Briar Creek overpass will be right in front of you. Take it, loop back over HWY 74 (Independence) and BOCO will be on your left.

I would take 485 to Independence, it is not that bad before 7 when you will be commuting.

I come up Independence everyday and you should be fine at that time of the morning assuming no accidents, broken water mains, police investigations, etc. Especially now that school is out.

Don't forget the people sauntering across Independence Blvd near the Wendy's.

I saw an interesting character today. Not only were his pants down far enough to see about 75% of the dude's boxers, he had his shirt pulled over his head and arms. He looked like one of those hockey players in a fist fight.

getting back on topic, drive safe!
