We're moving to the area this summer and have started to look at housing (online). Will be working near the I-77 and hwy 160 intersection. I have heard that the Celanese exit gets backed up quite a bit during the evening commute. I've also heard that hwy 160 gets very crowded during commute times as well. What areas in Fort Mill or Rock Hill would give me an easy commute and be in a good neighborhood? I'm looking for at least a 3/2 house btw $140,000 to $180,000 in price. Thanks for any suggestions.

The traffic around those areas really isn't that bad. I guess it really depends on what you're used to now. I would lean towards homes in the Fort Mill and Tega Cay areas because of resale and the good schools they attend. Feel free to DM me if you would like.

Thanks for your response. It's good to know that the areas esp 160 isn't bad. Kids are out of the house so I don't need to worry about schools except of course for resale. From reading about the area I'm amazed how quickly Ft. Mill area has grown in the last 10 to 20 years. Thinking about all the houses being built led me to wonder about how easy it is to get around on the established roads.

I think over time they will need to do something because of the amount of people moving here. If you need a realtor recommendation just DM me. Ours was great

i can tell you that traffic has really increased over the last 5 years on 160. The morning can back up to the recycling center and in the afternoon can be tough to get off of 77. As they continue to build more and more houses, this will only get worse.

I drive on celanese every day...it's not super fast but it's not that bad either (compared to Charlotte). It takes me 15 minutes to get from one end to the other

160 gets very congested near the Gold Hill intersection. Starting around 3:30 to 6PM it get's pretty backed up. They are going to widen 160 in that area in the next couple of years to help with traffic flow.

A nice place to look in your price range might be Knights Bridge on Gold Hill Rd. It's not far from 77 and if your headed south in the morning it's not too bad but does get backed up at the intersection of Gold Hill and Pleasant.

Beacon Knoll and Bailywick are also nice neighborhoods off of Pleasant. I would stick with Ft Mill for better resale value myself.

Traffic has become much worse since we have moved there. They have built thousand of houses all around us.

We just know when not to travel on those roads.
