Hi.
So I started working at the American Tobacco Campus and I like to commute to my home in North Raleigh via 98. Currently I take Ramseur St to S Roxboro to Holloway which turns into 98. It’s fine but I kind of feel like some of the parallel streets to Holloway may be less crowded? I have almost no knowledge of Durham streets/traffic patterns. Does anyone have recommendations for better routes / short cut tips that eventually end on 98? Is Liberty st a good alternative?
Thanks

The default routes to North Raleigh are either 70-540, or 98-50 (and since one of those routes has construction going on, your best bet is to take the same route you have been taking.

Liberty St doesn’t feel any less crowded west of Guthrie (and it dead ends at the Cemetery, so you have to take a side street and get back on 98)

There’s Geer to Cheek to Clayton to 98, but that might add time and you also have to deal with School traffic.

There’s also Geer to Miami to 98 but again, it adds time.

Since the fastest, least hassle routes will vary by the daily traffic, accidents, police traps, etc. I suggest you use of the of the smartphone navigation apps that get real-time info, rather than relying on a fixed commute route.

I use Waze pretty much every time I leave my house. Regardless of how well I know the route, several times a month it will suggest a different route because of a current slowdown in my planned path.
