My job is moving to Carrollton which is technically closer to me but since I don't get to drive SRT the whole way I have no idea what to expect my commute time to be. How would you suggest getting to Trinity Mills Rd in Carrollton every morning? Google maps suggests SRT to I35 to PGBT but I've seen I35 in the mornings and I don't think that's a good option.

Some of my ideas were 635 () to Midway to TM
Or SRT to Hebron to Midway to TM

Any ideas?

The side streets in Coppell get pretty backed up once school is going on. There are still a few that are2-lane blacktop that just can't handle the traffic.

Honestly, I'd take the 121 tollway to Old Denton Road and access it from there.

Why not try 635 to PGBT/Luna. This stretch of 635 is fine.

Ah yeah I remember a while back somehow going through Coppell around 6pm. I was not too happy.

I've never been on it around 8am but I know that the Bass Pro and Hwy 26 intersection is pretty backed up. I'm assuming from all the traffic trying to get on 635.

Either way I plan on trying multiple routes and seeing which one is best.

Are they hiring? I live really close to there and am tired of driving to down town every day.

SRT to Macarthur to SL to PGBT then get off on TM. You are against traffic all the way.
