Hello
I plan on moving near the medical center (then again, my location depends on which hospital I'll be working at) in the near future. What do you think the commute time would be from the medical center area to Austin Highway (near Eisenhauer rd)? A martial arts school that I'll be attending starts at 5pm.

Thanks in Advance

There are really not any good back routes from the med center to Austin Highway, you would pretty much have to take I-10 to 410 exit harry wurzbach or perrin beitel. At 5 PM your looking at 40-55 minutes, if you can go thirty minutes earlier say at 4:30 it drops to a 30 minute commute, the major blockage is on 410 between I-10 and San Pedro.

The backup isn't usually there anymore, it is further down just before the start of the construction zone.

It shouldn't be too bad, and the time should speed up some once that Construction finishes. I think that is only about 6 months away.

At that point 410 will be 5 lanes in either direction the whole way, right now it is squeezed down to 3 lanes at Nacogdoches, which causes the worst backups.

If you get work at Medical Center Downtown - your commute would be a bit better
