so im working on a job in waterbury ct and thinking of landing on the mass line, agawam, w side, southwick.

google maps says 1 hour commute, how real is that, i know years ago the 91 ride was a nightmare but that was way back when it was all 2 lane.

gas prices vs high cost of rentals in ct is the balancing point i guess.

i think if i am 500 a month less in rent i should be ok on the gas side of things.

One hour sounds awfully fast. I am trying to remember from the times I drove that way but it's been quite a while, sorry.

There is no way you can make it to Waterbury in an hour from those times during rush hour. Maybe 1 1/2 hours during rush hour,the traffic builds up quickly around the Day hill rd exit on 91 and remains that way till well after the 84 interchange and 84 itself is a nightmare all the way into Danbury. If you are working off peak hours it is do able but definately not during peak hours.

I wouldn't do that commute if you I were you. Increase your budget and move into CT (as much as it pains me to say it - I am not a fan of CT).
