I just recently got a 9-5 job out in Chanhassen, but as I live back in St. Paul its a little bit of a hike. My question is, what would the traffic like be during rush hour? I'm hoping it won't be too bad because I will be heading out of the cities as opposed to joining the grind inward, but I don't really know. Anyone have any idea?

That might not be a fun commute depending on the routes you can take and where in St. Paul you would be coming from. What route would you most likely take?

5 to 494 to 212/5... I live across the river from fort snelling so that's the easiest way...

494 near 35W is always bad, then you hit the 169 mess in EP to go that route. It won't be a fun commute. The Crosstown might actually be an easier commute once you get past 35W but either way you hit a couple of the worst traffic areas in the cities.

All I can think of is: you better start loving time alone in your car, because the commute could be painfully long if you don't!

it's the way BACK that will be the most painful....getting there shouldn't be too bad.

You can look at it positively- you have a job that is within driving distance at all! A lot more than many, right? Good luck.

The crosstown commons project will be finished later this year, so that might become a nice alternate route. Congrats on the job.
