Can someone give me an idea of how bad traffic is when driving from Clayton, DE to Newark, DE during rush hour traffic?

We are looking to relocate from NJ, so as you can imagine I'm used to traffic, but I'm hoping we can lessen our commute a bit.

Thanks so much for all of your responses in advance!

While I have never made that trip during rush hour, it cannot be nearly as bad as Jersey. You would probably come up Route 1. Traffic should move quickly, since most people drive about 80 mph. You will pay a toll. Where in Newark?

Near the University of Delaware. How long do you think it will be? 40 minutes?

I have had to give this some thought and I believe you should plan on 50-60 minutes. If you take Route 1 to Route 72, it could take about 15-20 minutes going to Newark just on Route 72. Route 72 is 2 lanes almost all the way. If you come up Route 13 and turn on Route 71 to 896, most of that road is 2 lanes. Additionally, you run into traffic going to I-95. The best that I could suggest is make the run yourself during a regular rush hour--not holidays or summer.
