Hey guys, I start a new job in Rocky Hill in less than two weeks. I still dont have an apartment! My girlfriend and I really want to live in West Hartford. How do you think the commute would be to Rocky Hill? Also, does any one know of any easier routes besides taking 84 and 91? Thanks!

I don't think it would be horrible, but depending on what time you plan to commute you may hit some traffic on 91 south. There could be alternate routes, but it really depends on where you will be working in rocky hill. For example, if you are closer to the newington/berlin side you could take route 9 from WH into berlin or newington and then take some back roads into rocky hill. Or if you are closer to cromwell, you could take route 9 through cromwell and then back road it up back into rocky hill. what area of rocky hill will you be working in?

I'm not exactly to sure, it is on Dividend Road. I remember when taking the interview it was just a short drive, no more than 5 minutes, off of 91.

Yup - you will be closer to the river front so 91 south will probably be your best bet. You could actually take 9 south if you are near that in WHartford and then hop on 91 N and back track into rocky hill, but you may want to try both ways on different days and see which works best for you. Again, traffic will depend on timing so taking 84 to 91 may not be an issue at all.

Newington road south to 175 (Cedar st) east across Newington to Rocky Hill.

that's close to my apartment complex where I live so 91 is your best bet. Depending on when you have to be in to work and when you leave to go home will determine how bad the traffic is. Rt 9 is a possibility, but won't take much time off your time

I would not go 175 - lots of lights and traffic as it goes right through the Newington DT.

not to mention the fact that 175 goes into Wethersfield north of the Rt 3/Silas Deane intersection. RH is a bit further south on the Silas Deane starting around where the Walmart and S&S are (Town Line Rd)..
