Today was the worst day so far. They seem to have closed the middle lane near the Tyco Road intersection and it took me well over an hour to get to Tysons. Oh well...

What's the drive home in the afternoon like? How long does it take you? Is there a time to leave by where you can avoid much of the traffic?

Thanks!

It varies day to day, but if I leave prior to around 4:45 I can get home in less than 30 minutes. If I leave after 5:00 it can take 45 minutes or longer.

5:00-7:00 is probably the worst time. After 7:00 traffic flows smoothly.

Today the commute was a breeze, it was like driving Rt. 7 on a Saturday morning. Why can't everyday be Spring break?
