If I have to drive from Highlands Ranch/Littleton to downtown Denver, which would be faster?

Google Maps suggests Santa Fe, 17 miles, 25 minutes.

I25 is longer, 26 miles, but with all the stops on Santa Fe, would I25 be faster?

Depends on time of day - but during non-peak hours, I have found SantaFe to be faster - From SantaFe exit on I-25 to Mineral Ave junction. At one point, I almost felt that the traffic lights were in a "wave" - Get one green and got almost all of them green throughout !

Depends where

I'm near Aspen Grove in Littleton and I take Sante Fe up to I-25 and just get on there for a few miles

Don't think Sante Fe would be faster the whole way

I live off Broadway, driving downtown I have taken both routes. Santa Fe is faster during rush hour, especially if there are more than one driving for the HOV lane.

I would say if your destination is near Broadway, I-25 if it's closer to the west side, Santa Fe.

Santa Fe backs up pretty bad during the worst of rush hour, but its not much slower than 25 rest of the time. If you happen to have a carpool or drive it non rush hours take Santa Fe.
