Can anyone tell me what the commute time would be from Walton HS district to downtown and also from Walton HS district to Alpharetta, during rush hour and during off-peak hours?

Also wondering if there is anywhere in East Cobb or Roswell that would provide a better commute to downtown than Walton HS district. Would we be better off somewhere that is close to the 75 or the 400?

Thanks very much!!

Access to the interstate is everything.

You'd be better off going up a couple of exits instead of living a few miles away from the ramps.

I'm not familiar with the East Cobb area at all, but it pays to figure out how you would get to the highway. Sometimes, certain exits have easier access because there are less traveled roads you can take to get there. For example, I wouldn't go anywhere near somewhere like Barrett Parkway because there are no real good alternative streets, but a road like say Old Milton has several alternative ways to travel, and it's generally not hard to get down to Haynes Bridge or up to Windward if Old Milton itself is a wreck.

I happen to think the 400 corridor is a bit better than I-75, so I would trend toward Alpharetta, but I will admit that 75 does eliminate the 400/85 bottleneck which is a pain. I-75 royally sucks, but it IS a straighter shot into town. Theoretically, 400 offers at least some type of MARTA access. You probably wouldn't use it often, but if something happened and you found out the roads ITP were completely socked in everywhere for a huge event or something, you could always hop on the train at North Springs.

Take what I say with a grain of salt. I'm not sure why, but every time I venture into Cobb county, I marvel at the horrendous drivers, and abysmal roads. I'm not sure why I have that bias, and I'm sure it is a bias....I just think just about everything about living in Cobb county is a bigger hassle than it needs to be. A lot of people like it a lot, though, so you'll need to decide for yourself.
