Default How Far Is a Typical Commute from Stamford to Beacon Falls?

My partner may be accepting a position in Beacon Falls. He will be commuting from Stamford, CT to Beacon Falls, CT during the weekdays--leaving Stamford around 6:15 to 6:30am. He is going against traffic I believe, for the most part. Should he expect much traffic? If so, where? Also, about how long should this take?

Thanks for the input!

Traffic is better going that way, but there is really never an "against" on the Merrit. Just one way worse than the other. Considering the time of day, he should be fine. I would guess about an hour drive at least, perhaps a bit more.

If he takes I-95, traffic is bad going both ways. As Jviello said, one way will be worse (south in the morning, north in evening) and same goes for the Merritt. With traffic, to Beacon Falls can take over an hour. Without, it will be about 50 minutes depending how fast he drives.

It is possible to commute to Beacon Falls by train.

There is a train that leaves Stamford at 7:11 and arrives in Beacon Falls at 8:37. It would be much less stressful than driving. Even if your partner doesn't take the train often it is a nice backup option for when the weather is bad.

I drive between Stamford and Beacon Falls quite frequently. It is easy especially if you are going to Beacon Falls in the AM. Much easier drive than train, straight up Merrit to Route 8 and north form them, 45-60 minutes 90% of the time.
