But here are some suggestions:
I take 74 in in the morning, if you leave before 6:30 or so it's not too bad.
To go home I'll take 85 to 485 to Lawyers or Idelwild to Rocky River and cross 74 to get to near the airport in Monroe.
Yes this is the long way around but there is much less traffic on 485 in that direction that time of day.
If 85 is jammed up then I might take North Tryon to Harris to Idelwild.
Can I ask you how long that takes? That's like triple the amount of miles.
