Google maps says 30 minutes from Roswell to Duluth, taking 120. From my limited experience in the area, I know that east-west travel during rush hour is not always easy. Anyone out there have any experience with this? Is 30 minutes reasonable, or is this another one of those commutes that takes 30 minutes in the dead of night and two hours the rest of the time?

Kind of depends on 'where' in Duluth and Roswell. I haven't made that drive in a long time(thank goodness!) but I can't imagine it has gotten easier over the past few years. I do recommend a watchful eye on the LEOs in both cities...cute little unmarked cars running traffic duty!

I'm sure someone will chime in with real numbers....good luck!

Your big intersections will be big headaches. You can sit through 5 lights at State Bridge and Medlock Bridge. Haynes Bridge to Old Alabama to Medlock. Once again sitting at lights will take most of your time. Going further into duluth will get worse, adding Buford Hwy into the mix. I dont feel good about 30 min at rush hour when you could eat up 15 at one intersection.
Unless there is some super-secret back road that only 3 people know about

My drive would be from the Houze/Rucker general area in Roswell over to Peachtree Industrial Blvd NW/State Bridge area in Duluth. This would avoid the Buford Hwy area, but not the Haynes Bridge to Old Alabama to Medlock section you mention. From the map, it looks like there is no good way to do this (except possibly by helicopter). I'm guessing if I get any interest from a potential employer I should ask for flex time...
