Would this even be feasible? My husband was transferred here and works out of our home but the company I used to work for only has an office in Alpharetta. I was not planning on working when we moved here but a great job just opened up and I'm not sure I want to turn it down. I recently moved to Snellville from Florida so I'm not sure if there are any good routes to Alpharetta.

Help!

We tried to figure out a route the other day. It is one of the more challenging commutes.

From Google>>> 25 mi/43 minutes???

Don't even try it!!

If you really like the job, find a place further north, like Woodstock or Duluth, if you prefer to stay in the suburbs. You'll be a lot happier and you won't age as fast as you would if you were to make that godawful commute from Snellville.

Thanks! I'm on the right track I think with Ronald Reagan Parkway to Pleasant Hill Rd, etc. I'm actually trying to find a shortcut up there because I live just south of Rt 124 where they call it Centerville.

Darn....I will not move from my house in Snellville but I am thinking of picking up a small house closer to Alpharetta for the week and then 'come home' on the weekends.

I'll probably just not take the job, hurts to lose all the years I put in for the company though.

Any commute that involves these two roads is frustrating. Gridlock. Always bad on Pleasant Hill.

From yesterday's AJC---Commuting around Atlanta--if you aren't on the road by 6:30--you will probably be stuck in traffic...

The most direct route is Ronald Reagan, then pleasant Hill (then becomes State Bridge road). Unfortunately, you go with flow of traffic. It is going to be very tough drive. I drive the opposite direction everyday. It is against traffic and it is so much better.

I was afraid of that. Do you have any idea if it will take more than an hour? I used to do the Miami-Ft Lauderdale commute back in my younger days and that was at least an hour so that's my limit.

It all depends where Alpharatta you work. City of Alpharatta is on the west of GA400. That's long drive. If you work in John's Creek (still have alpharatta zip code), then it is not too bad.

State Bridge just finished widens the road from single road to two lanes (can you believe state bridge used to be one lane road?). There is another big project on Pleasant Hill/I-85. That project is due to finish in a couple of years.

Totally true. We used to live over in Snellville and what a mess it would be to get to Alpharetta.
