I live in Simpsonville and have a possible job opportunity at Clemson. Can anyone tell me what traffic is like during morning and evening rush hours, and what is the best route(s) to take?

TIA ~ purrrl

If you stay on I-85 (try either U.S. 276 or S.C. 417 to Mauldin Road) and take Clemson Boulevard (U.S. 76) it shouldn't be too bad. I'd definitely avoid rush hour in Easley whenever possible, in case you thought about taking U.S. 123.

In general, seems to me that the mornings getting out of the Simpsonville/Greenville area would be worse than evenings coming back into the area. If you're leaving before most others get on the road to more "local" employers, you'll probably be fine.

Is I-185 an option? I knew someone that used this to get to Anderson and he said it was the quickest route.

Why not go through Pelzer to 8 and then 88 into Clemson. That's the way most local fans go to the ball games. We only see 85 when we cross it.

I was going to suggest that route also - you can take Fairview Rd to SC 418 - SC 418 becomes SC 8 when you cross US25. SC 88 will take you into Pendleton and you'll end up at the campus at Perimeter Rd (at the Water Tower)

I took that route a few times weekdays and traffic was pretty light - took about 50 minutes to an hour.
