Ok, I searched before I posted this, and found nothing. So here goes....we want to move. Been here in SA for two months and have lived in the "hole" that is called 281 north of 1604, in an apartment. We have looked in Alamo Heights and have decided on a complex....but today we looked around Huebner Oaks. So my question is this....husband works at Lackland and of course is concerned about the drive. Have yet to experience anything on I-10. He would be going to work at 6am, so no problem there. But coming home would be of course, 410 to I-10. Can anyone honestly give me opinion on what traffic is like around there about 4pm? The apartment is right off of I-10 at Huebner. I do realize that traffic is a mess everywhere here....and have learned that the west side of town and north of 1604 are messes. Any help or opinions would be appreciated. Thanks for your time in advance.

On Mondays I drive from Bandera and 410 at 4:30, and the 410 part of his commute would be no problem. The horrible traffic is heading west on 410, not east. The other days of the week I head toward Huebner Oaks from I-10/410 interchange at 4:30. It is just starting to get bad. If he can make it to your apartment before 4:30 there shouldn't be much of a problem. If he happens to get held over at work, I would suggest just staying late. I sometimes do that when I can't leave on time, and I would rather get work done than sit in traffic.

I-10 was widened to 10 lanes and has some of the lightest traffic inside 1604. The interchange at 10/410 recently completed construction.

I live in an apartment at Huebner Oaks near I-10 and Huebner. The traffic on the blocks just east and west of 1-10, on Huebner itself, is really horrible during lunch, and from 3:00 to 7:00 or so--worst on Fridays. I'm not sure when the bad traffic starts on 1-10 between 410 and Huebner, but it is pretty bad by 4:30 at least. Traffic aside, I love the location of this apartment--close to a lot of things I need.

hubby drives the 410/10 every day. Early morning is no problem. Afternoons are worse, but WAY better than ANY of the 1604 interchanges, and better than the west side of 1604 or 281 as well.

He goes all the way from SW general hospital on SW military up to where we live on UTSA blvd off I-10. Even in traffic it only takes him about 35 minutes in the afternoons, 25 in the early morning.
