Can I get some honest times on this commute? Bad weather, rush hour etc? I am looking at Anderson for the schools. I've decided I want a district that goes K-6 & they are hard to find in Cinci.

Thanks!

Well first traffic in cincinnati is very bad for the city its size in fact worst in the state of Ohio, if you dont take the freeways from anderson to blue ash it might take you about 10 min. without traffic and 20 min. with traffic. With freeways it will take much longer because of the cincinnati topography and because of the somewhat slow drivers in the area.

If you are going to get from Anderson to Blue Ash in 10 minutes you will have a lot of speeding tickets. Figure on more like 30 minutes.

Thanks for the replies.
Would that 30 minutes be on the back roads in good weather? Should he expect even longer in bad weather?

Keep in mind that to look at the city of Cincinnati's population is very deceiving. Around 300,000. However, the metro is around 2.2 million. So while you could classify Cincinnati as a mid-sized city based on population numbers alone, it's anything but. There is very thick traffic daily. 30 minutes is a good estimate w/o weather or wrecks.

Look at the bright side - it's not as bad as Atlanta.

There is no easy way to get there since cross county highway does not go across county. If you are closer to I-275. You best bet is to use I-275 N to I-71 S.

If you are closer to Mt Washington. You may use Clough Pike or Beechmont Ave to Wooster Rd heading east then make your way over to Red Bank Rd then I-71 N. Of course this is the more confusing route, but will be your only option if something is wrong with I-275 or in bad weather.

The 30 minutes will be expressway under normal conditions. The back roads may be a little shorter but not much difference in time due to the fact there are quite a few hills between Anderson and Blue Ash and the roads are quite twisty and turny around those hills.

Anderson's a great place, but why not something closer to work such as Blue Ash (out around Sharon Woods Golf Course is absolutely beautiful) and still be in great schools? Loveland, same thing.
