I was wondering if anyone has any personal experience with these commutes:

1. katy to the intersection of beltway 8 and I-10. katy to intersection of 59 and beechnut

2. sugarland to the intersection of beltway 8 and I-10. sugarland to the intersection of 59 and beechnut.

3. missouri city to the intersection of beltway 8 and I-10. missouri city to the intersection of 59 and beechnut.


Specifically, I'd like to know how long those commutes would be during rush hour (ie driving from a home in those places--katy, sugarland, missouri city to the destinations I've mentioned).

thanks!!

About an hour, if you take beltway 8. It also depends on what direction your are coming from. If you are going against traffic, it may be shorter. If you are in traffic, then all of those freeways are parking lots during rush hour. Especially I10!

Katy to the beltway would probably be the most traffic and time, but a lot of people make that commute. The beltway between 10 an 59 is going to be a bit of a drive either way. If I was going to make it every day I'd get an EZ tag for the tollway. On the road beside the tollway is enormous traffic in rush hour, especially around Bellaire. Overall it would be Missouri City, then Sugarland and then Katy for the least driving time.

Katy to the Beltway? Not bad at all! 20 minutes in traffic. Thanks to the completion of 2 sections of the Katy Freeway project, you won't hit any traffic until Hwy 6, and then you only have 4.5 miles to go to BW 8. That's where you'll see the majority of the snarl and your 20 minutes

Missouri City is going to be the longest to BW 8 & I-10. Sugar Land will be the shortest to 59 and Beechnut. VERY short! 15 min, maybe?

Nope, Katy Freeway to Beltway 8 would be the shortest. The freeway is four-five lanes on each side until Highway 6. Once you get to Highway 6, traffic starts backing up. Depending on the day, it is slow, then moves, or has heavy volume, but moving, or, it is bumper to bumper to Downtown (for the most part).
