Default What time does traffic get bad on 25 north in the AM

We just moved here. Until we get a house (in Arvada), we will be commuting from Glendale to wheat ridge for school in the morning. Drop off is at 7:45. Just wondering if 25 will be an option.

The 25 starts backing up between 6 and 7 near Santa Fe Drive. That area is going to also be under construction for some time as the transportation department is widening and reconfiguring that area of the freeway that is backed up most of the day.

That freeway would still be your best bet. There are no other direct routes there without taking surface streets.

Just some good natured ribbing here, but even without "transplant" in your name I knew that you were a transplant given that you called it THE 25... from California?

I would go Holly -> 13th -> Franklin -> Park Ave -> 38th.

Depends on where in Wheat Ridge. You could consider taking Colorado -> 8th Ave West -> 6th Ave Freeway -> Wadsworth or Kipling, and then go north on Wadsworth / Kipling to your destination. This isn't as good if your destination is close to or north of I-70 however. There are a number of ways to get to 6th Ave Freeway -- you could take speer to 6th/8th, for instance, instead of 8th Ave.

The traffic on 6th ave isn't bad because you're reverse commuting. I-25 is bad in both directions along that stretch and should be avoided.

Right now we are close to Colorado. Speer to 6th was the other option if 25 is just too bad.
