Does anyone know what kind of commute we would have going from Mooresville to Huntersville. We may be getting positions at the Presbyterian Hospital in Huntersville. Should we just live in Huntersville? We were looking at lower taxes, more house and land near the lake and better schools, convenience to shopping,library,parks/trails and close proximity to a YMCA. We are relocating from Tallahassee.

I from Mooresville to Cornelius (exit 28) opposite rush hour (north in the AM, south in the PM). I WISH it took 10 minutes (and I am closer!)

It depends on where in Mooresville you live. I get off at exit 33 and go north on 21, since I have to go east of town on 150. This is OPPOSITE the majority of the traffic. On a good day, it can take me 20 minutes. If you are dealing with 150 near the 77 exit (#36), traffic is much worse there (the side by the lake). In all honesty, you are looking at 30 minutes minimum if you live west of 77. And, 77 is only 2 lanes all the way south. One day I stopped by WalMart on my way home (meaning I got onto 77 at exit 36 instead of 33) and it took me over and hour to get home. And, that is 8 miles. Last week it took me 25 minutes to get my 5 mile drive from exit 33 to exit 28 in (meaning it took me 45 minutes from where I started out in Mooresville). No accidents, no apparent reason. This is not uncommon, either. It happens a few times a month. Oh, if there is an accident on 77, there is only one other route besides going WAY out of your way, and that will take you as long or longer than staying on... I learned that the hard way If you have the idea to do it, so does everyone else!

In a nutshell (I know there are a lot of numbers in that paragraph ), it depends on where in Mooresville you choose to live. The eastern side (away from the lake) will shorten your commute. It also depends on when you are commuting. During rush hour, I have no idea....

I would just look in both regions and find the home that fits you. Both have pros and cons. Obviously the closer to Huntersville the less commute. If you moved to Rosedale in Huntersville you could probably walk/bike to work

If you mean the Lowe's YMCA in Mooresville, it will take about 5 minutes to get on I77 in the mornings at Exit 33. From that point, without traffic, you'll be about 10 minutes from the hospital. But, the southbound side of I77 does seem to tank through Huntersville in the morning. You'd probably want to allow 30 minutes for the trip on average. Wish I could be more specific for you, but I take the backroads that parallel I77 to get to my office in northern Meck county. Welcome to the area!

Try looking in Birkdale at Exit 25 Huntersville great community, family oriented, walk to shopping, dining, nightlife. 2 miles from Presby Huntersville. Homes go from 250k-600k. It is a golf community. Has tennis courts, basketball, parks, pool, lots of nice people. CarolinaHome.com

Default Time to Huntersville from Mooresville

It also depends on your shift. I work in south Charlotte but I leave my house about 6:15a as I work from 7a-4p. I get to south Charlotte in 45 minutes on average. Going home I hit the bottle neck going north at exit 23 where the 4 lanes become 2. But I still get home in about an hour.

Basically it depends

I would pick Huntersville over Mooresville ANYDAY - What is your price range? Check out Macaulay, Birkdale, The Peninsula, Northstone, THe hamptons. Mooresville traffic is terrible and there is NO shopping near by except for Walmart and Target (which are both Super ones and are great) JMO - don't get mad.....

We moved to Birkdale Village in Huntersville. Exit 25 on
I77. Presby Hospital Exit 23. From BV you can get to the hospital without getting on the Interstate if traffic is bad. "We" have a nice little village, good shops, restaurants, and bars. Homes from 200k to
400k plus I can easily walk into the village with my dog and have a cup of coffee at Starbucks or an afternoon beer at the F & H.
