I think I'm going to take a job in Floyds Knobs at the high school. We've conditionally decided to move to the clifton area. My wife can transfer there or New Albany. Obviously New Albany is more convenient and we don't mind it, but the apartments and rentals we've looked at have been in really poor shape.

Question is, if I reverse commute, Clifton to Floyds Knobs should my commute be pretty smooth at 6:30 am? I'd take the 64 bridge. I know it might not be so smooth the other direction but I figured a reverse commute might be doable. Thoughts? Thanks.

Yes, I make that commute often. At 630 ,there is zero traffic. 20 mins max, maybe 15 if you speed and depending on how close you are to the grinstead/64 interchange. Now, around 430 pm, at least until the bridge opens in 2017, traffic is slightly annoying going home. But not bad. I'd say 30 mins max, and most days, probably 25 mins coming home. There ARE some decent rentals in new albany, but you have to look, and if you love clifton, go for it.

Morning traffic that direction not bad, the on ramp from Story Ave to I 64 west is closed util the project is complete, you'll have to go to Grinstead or Zorn. Which apartments have you looked at in New Albany?

I've looked at Knobs Pointe, Cedar Ridge, Kingsfield apartments. Kingsfield not too bad, the other two not very nice. A lot of the other apartments are income restricted and others just don't have any vacancies. I'm really trying to find a home for rent right by the hospital, but it's been tough. I have found a few, but I have two dogs so they've been a no go.

Hospital area has fewer apartment complexes, Charlestown Rd has more options. May want to look at Charlestown Crossing, Wynngate, Academy Park, etc. St Charles Place is a condo complex that has rentals periodically

Traffic shouldn't be too bad at 6:30 heading out, but coming back home could be a mess in the afternoons. I agree a lot of the apartments in New Albany are pretty crappy. A few newer ones have popped up that look nice though. You would think Knobs Pointe would be nice. There is so much potential there, but it's a bit of a hole and there are a lot of shady people.

Charlestown Crossing would be a good option to consider. We looked at Kingsfield as well and really considered those when we moved down here. They are a really good size for the price, decently kept, and in a convenient spot. Just not many frills. There are some apartments just a little farther up on Green Valley Rd and Hausfeldt Lane that look okay too. Not sure on the name of those.

Another place you might consider: There are some newer apartments near me on IN-62 (Exit 118 off of I-64 for Georgetown/Lanesville) called Edwardsville Trace Apartments. It has direct walking access to Gary Cavan Park. Also no more than 15 minutes to Floyd Central, and you don't even have to take the interstate. (http://www.rent.com/indiana/georgeto...nts-4-61586273) It's not nearly as cool as the Clifton area, but it's much quieter and not nearly as crowded/congested as Louisville. From there you can easily be in downtown New Albany in 12 minutes or off the interstate in downtown Louisville in about 20-25 max during non-rush hour times.
