Default Commuting from Yorkville to Lombard?

Relocating to the area soon and found a great home online in Yorkville but the job will be in Lombard. What is that commute like? Set me straight if it's unheard of. What is Yorkville like?

I'd guess it will take you about an hour in smooth traffic, but in bad weather i wouldn't be surprised if it took nearly double that.
Yorkville isn't bad with more of a small town rural feel to it. Lots of house for the money though travel to the city is going to be pretty rough. If you don't mind driving it shouldn't be a problem.

The commute will all depend on where in yorkville the home is located. travel up rt 47 is somewhat slow-going during rush hour times. Once you get to sugar grove you can hop on I88 and be in the lombard area in 30 minutes-40 minutes. It really all depends on the drive up 47. I am biased, but I would suggest looking at sugar grove for the quicker access to the tollway or on the west side of aurora, near the orchard road area..which has direct access to I88.

Possibly drive up 47 to Elburn then hop on the UP-W train to Lombard. Don't know how that would compare in time, though it may ease some of the stress. Yorkville is the home of former Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert.

Man, what a long commute. It always amazes me what people will do for a big house way out west. I would much rather live closer to work, but whatever suits you best - go for it.

Thank you all for the info, it is difficult to get a feel for the area online only. We are visiting the end of this month and hope to get more acclimated to where to look
