I commute to Western Connecticut and have an 8:00 am class Tuesday and Thursday classes up in Danbury. I don't think 25 is that backed up by then (I'd have to leave my house by 7:10 am) and even if it is, most of the traffic is going the opposite way anyways. I actually think taking the backroads (Daniels Farm to 111 or Booth Hill/Wheeler to 111, then 111 to 34 to 84) is actually faster then taking 25 because there's no traffic lights to deal with.

So my question is, what time in the morning does Masuk and Newtown high start, and how much of a backup is there in the morning (since I drive by both on the backroads). I know when I was at Trumbull (albeit I graduated in 05 so it's been a while) on a good day traffic on Daniels Farm would be backed up to the connector exit, and on bad days could even go as far as White Plains road. Not concerned about THS traffic because I'll be long gone by then, only concerned about Newtwon and Masuk. Help would be appreciated.

If you take Route 34 to be in Danbury for 8 AM, you will hit some traffic taking a left onto 84 from 34. It won't be much (maybe 10 mins) but once yuo get on 84, it will be slow but moving. A friend of mine used to commute via 34 to Danbury for 8 AM from Derby. She left at 7:15, and got there with a few minutes to spare.

You're better off taking 25 to 84.

Way better way to get to 84 from 25 without the traffic.

Cutlers Farm to Pepper St. to 25 to Swamp Road to Toddy Hill. Takes you right out to 84. No lights either.

This is the way I've been going latetly. Nothing worse then being stuck behind a truck on 25 because there is literally no where to go once you get into Newtown:

Booth hill to Elm st, cut over to Pepper st, get on 25 right where the industrial park is, and cut over to Danbury on route 302. Lot better trip.

At that time, 25 will be fine and 84 will probably be fine too. It's not a big deal. You'll get a feel for it.
