We are debating between homes in the western centennial area and the eastern centennial/SE aurora area. One big issue is that my wife will be working in schools in that eastern centennial area. So my question is, how foolish are we being to consider adding the extra commuting time of going about an extra 8-10 miles along Arapaho road? Does it being a reverse commute help at all?

We're coming from the chicago area, so estimating a 20-30 min commute each way doesn't sound bad at all, but I realize that after we've been in Denver for a bit, our standards may change.

Bear in mind that CDOT is about to start major construction on the I-25/Arapahoe Road interchange. The project is slated to last roughly two years and it'll make an already bad choke point even worse over the near term.

In addition, are you aware that Arapahoe Rd is currently under major construction from eastern Centennial to SE Aurora? It's supposed to be completed in late summer but it's currently a mess.

Better to live east or south of work to not have the sun glare commute.

If you are going to work in the eastern Centennial area I would definitely look out that way. Personally I love the SE Aurora/Centennial are, but you could also consider going further south to the Parker area.
