Hello,

My husband and I are thinking of settling in West Ashley. My new job is in North Charleston. What kind of commute time am I looking at in the morning (I need to be there by 8:15am) and in the evening (I get out at 5:00pm).

Thanks!

What part of North Charleston and what part of West Ashley? Do you know which Interstates you'll be near? What main roads?

Depending on where you'd be working in North Charleston (and where you'd be living in West Ashley), your commute could be anywhere from 20-45+ minutes. You'll either hit North Charleston via Hwy.7/Cosgrove, or 526/Leeds Ave/Dorchester Rd/26. The only problem you'll face is that during the rush, both of those routes will be a bit crowded.

In West Ashley we will be living off of Ashley River Rd. and Bees Ferry in one of the subdivisions. I will be working right off of I-26 on Northside Drive in North Charleston.

Easy 45 mins with traffic. Without, possibly 20. Have you been to the area here yet?

Nope, not yet. I will be flying down late next Tuesday and will be staying until Friday morning. My projected move date is somewhere around the 1st of May.

If you can, the best thing to do is go ahead and attempt to make the drive while you're down here. That will give you the most accurate idea. As always, accidents can and most likely *will* slow you down a considerable amount, depending. Good luck!

On Northside Dr. you will be dealing with two schools that are located on that road. There is Northside Christian school and Alice Birney Middle. So traffic in the morning might be a little congested.

Actually, you can get to North Charleston from West Ashley far quicker than you might want to. But if you are headed for the northern most parts of NC from the same parts of West Ashley, you might think it is not even possible,

The main highway through North Charleston is Interstate 26 which is being widened. Delays sometime run for over an hour, as all the traffic from downtown, James Island, Johns Island, Mt. Pleasant and several beaches all vie for access to I-26, on the way to Summerville and Columbia.

The construction is only at night during the week, backups like you are talking about are usually only during rush hour traffic (this is a misnomer since most days it is 2 hours) or if there is a wreck/ disabled vehicle/ dog walking along the road you get the idea....
