Here is my situation:

I live in Central Conn now (work at Wallingford) but plan to move to south due to wife's job. (stamford, norwalk area).

Couple senarios:

1. we live in Trumbull area. Then How bad is the traffic for my wife (to stamford 25 mils) how bad is it for me (to wllingford, 30 mils) I guess I am against the traffic, while she is with the traffic?

2. We live in Norwalk. How bad is it for my wife's commute and how bad is it for my commute (46mils) Am I still against traffic?

3. We live in Stamford, she doesn't need much drive. Then I need to drive 60 mil one way. how bad is my drive? still against traffic?

If there is traffic for above situation, how early to get on road would help? and which road is better off (I95 or 15)?

Appreaciate any valuable input

Hello there.
I live in Stamford and works at Waterbury, and that's 55 miles away.
The time to get to and from work is 55 mins each way.
The drive is very smooth both to and from work except for accidents.
Once there's an accident, add 15-30 mins to the time. It happens average about 1 per month.
I just moved since April, so I hadn't had to deal with the winter yet, so that will be interesting.... I wonder what the winter is like for Connecticut...

By the way, I was to live in Waterbury and work in Stamford, I think it would take me 2 - 3 hours each way. The traffic is bad from the other side.

If you live in Fairfield County and commute to Wallingford, you will be going against the traffic flow in the morning and evening. Of course all it takes is one accident in either direction and you are in gridlock, either trying to squeeze by the accident or caught in rubbernecking traffic.
