I've never understand why people would prefer leaving at the buttcrack of dawn to have a bigger house, rather than having a smaller house and getting to leave at a normal time and getting to do things like have breakfast w your kids. But to each their own

Or just to have a saner, more manageable/stress-free commute in general.

To each their own indeed

You could try cutting through Clifton but Clifton is a toss up. Sometimes, especially during the summer, it can get super congested and trying to make a left/right turn can take up to 20 minutes but other than the turns it's typically smooth sailing. I use to cut through Clifton and take 29, 29 wasn't too bad. Clifton was where I had most of the problems but it was much better than taking 28 and 495.

Also, I wasn't going all the way to Tysons so ultimately, it's still going to be a long commute but try different options and see which works best for you. It may be best, if you can, to just use the Express Lanes/HOT Lanes.
