Just wondering your opinions...

I live in East Richardson area, and will be working in Oak Cliff. I'm thinking of driving on the toll roads (Bush turnpike to NDT) to save time. While I think the actual distance is going to be a little longer, the commute on 75, then 30, then 35E will be a killer. So what do you guys think? Is it worth it to ride the tollways down to the area instead?

It's usually quicker because traffic is lighter. However traveling that far via tollroads can get expensive. I took 190 from Garland, to the DNT up to the Legacy area of Plano, and I must have paid at least $5 in tolls one way. On the trip back I just took the long way.

I love the GB/190, but the NDT is a struggle. It took me almost an hour last week when I was coming back from Austin to get from the 35 exit onto the NDT to the Park exit in Plano. It was brutal. It seems preston north would be faster. Also, getting home into Frisco at rush hour on the NDT is bad also. The mornings don't seem as bad.

In my limited experience traveling the DNT during rush hour, I'll agree with Socketz. The tollway can be a bear.

I'd just go Central (75) to Woodall Rogers to 35. I drive Central everyday and it's usually not bad at all. You don't need to get on 30. Woodall Rogers will cut you over to 35.

I think below Plano, the 75 is actually a great highway, once you get to Plano, it slows to a craw, but then it opens up again after Allen, even on the 2 lane portion....slow, but moving.

The tollway just seems packed from start to finish.
