Default Rush Hour times?

What time is considered Rush Hour in and around Charlotte?
Morning hours....
Afternoon lunch crowd hours....
Late afternoon going home rush hour....

We might live in Huntersville and commute to South Tryon Street every day for work (convention center area)... I'm wondering what would be considered rush hour times.

Any information will be so appreciated.

Sincerely,
Maddie Claire

Huntersville is not a bad commute if you live off of Exit #23. If you have to go to Exit #25 and get in all that Birkdale mess, that is a different story.

Huntersville is a GREAT place to live.

Yes, it will be in Birkdale Village (not sure what the exit is) - Birkdale to South Tryon Street (across from the convention center Uptown Charlotte).
What would be the worst hours morning and late afternoon going to and from work?

I would say 7am - 9am Southbound from Huntersville and 4pm - 630pm Northbound towards Huntersville.

Birkdale is nice (the village). You could get uptown in 30-40 minutes.

I LOVE Denver. Especially Cherry Creek Mall!

I have friends that live in Greenwood Village I think. They live in Cherry Hills Farm (nice area).

If you live on the south end of town, you can take the new Lynx light rail to the convention center. The train runs right thru the building!

I am so glad some people (and I know you do) support and push Light Rail.

And if you live Uptown, you can walk!

Yes, the Cherry Hills area is very beautiful... I live very close (Denver Tech Center).
