How long does it take to get to the Oak Grove Park/Zane Ave. at Hwy 610 area in Brooklyn Park during rush hour from these locations?

Golden Valley
Minnetonka
St. Louis Park
Eden Prairie
Shakopee

Maplewood
White Bear Lake
Oakdale
Inver Grove Heights
Eagan

More so, what are some of the bad stretches during rush hour and what are more free flowing if any?

What is 494, 169, and 100 like if you are going from Eden Prairie up to Brooklyn Park?

What is 694 like going from White Bear/Oakdale to Brooklyn Park?

Much thanks for your help!

ok i found somewhere to live in Hopkins near main street just off of hwy 169. I'm going to be traveling to work to the Target North campus in Brooklyn Park, near Oak Grove Park. What can I expect for rush hour if I need to start work at 8? I am new to the area and have no idea. Are we talking gridlock until I get north of 394, smooth sailing the whole way, or somewhere in between? Any help would be appreciated!

Not bad, either way. Maybe a little slow around 394, but no big deal.

if you lived in blaine or coon rapids the commute would be a cinch just taking 610

i have heard some horror stories about commuting on 169 but most of that was from plymouth south to eden prairie

Highway 169 isnt the best during rush hour. My suggestion would be to live in Champlin. You would be right there with no worries about traffic and rush hour. Champlin is a great community that sometimes gets overlooked.

+1 to Champlin, it's a very nice town.

How long does it take to get to the Oak Grove Park/Zane Ave. at Hwy 610 area in Brooklyn Park during rush hour from these locations?

Golden Valley - 20-30 minutes
Minnetonka - 20-40 minutes
St. Louis Park - 30 minutes
Eden Prairie - 40 minutes
Shakopee - 60 minutes

Maplewood - 30-40 minutes
White Bear Lake - 30 minutes
Oakdale - probably 50-60 minutes
Inver Grove Heights - probably 60-70 minutes
Eagan - probably 60-70 minutes

More so, what are some of the bad stretches during rush hour and what are more free flowing if any? - All the highways are usually packed during rush hour.

What is 494, 169, and 100 like if you are going from Eden Prairie up to Brooklyn Park? - Not bad, since most people are going the other way

What is 694 like going from White Bear/Oakdale to Brooklyn Park? - Pretty packed in both directions

I would highly recommend trying out the commute for yourself before you buy/rent a place! :-)

check out Minneapolis Traffic Map. Just log on during commuting time and it will give you an idea of your commute time. From the Western burbs, generally only 169 has any material traffic. I moved here from Chicago and was shocked at how fast rush hour commutes are.
