If you live in North Oak Cliff, you avoid having go through downtown Dallas as you're west of it. It takes about 35 min. to get into downtown Fort Worth in the mornings as you're going against traffic (barring weather, accidents, construction).

There is only one school zone - on Abrams at Glasgow around Woodrow Wilson HS and Lipscomb Elem - that's the only one.

So if the OP had to move closer to White Rock Lake area and still work in Ft Worth - the route I mentioned earlier is the best route to avoid traffic.
No traffic lights could be timed worse than Ft Worth's. Your route sounds like a good plan. If we do this, then hopefully the traffic going west on 30 won't be so bad in the morning.Especially since I would leave around 6:10-15.I thought about taking the train a day or two also, just to break the monotony of driving. I just need to see if I can load my bike on the TRE.
