Hello all,

I'll be working on Taylor Road, school hours (7:30 am to 4 or 5 pm) in a few weeks, commuting from the Marietta Square area. I've tried it going south on I-75, to I-285E, to 400N to Old Milton Pkwy.

Would any of you recommend the non-highway, local roads route via Roswell St or another route?

Before anyone asks, yes, I plan to move closer, but not for at least 6 months due to logistics.

Thanks in advance for your advice.

The proposed commute you list above will be rough, particularly in the evening. 400 S to I-285 West will be a slow go. I don't envy you with this commute.

Your only other option would be to take 140 to 120 home. That might be easier than navigating the highways in the afternoon.

Roswell St (becomes Roswell Rd and then Marietta Hwy when you cross the county line) to the center of Roswell and then Alpharetta St and cut through Norcross St to Holcomb Bridge to Old Alabama to Johns Creek. There is little to no traffic, with the exception of Holcomb Br for the short distance can get a little crowded.
