I walked out of my motel at 9AM, what is typically the height of rush hour, and I saw 6-lane Briargate Parkway (I-25, exit 151) totally DEVOID of traffic, save a measly six cars that were leisurely making their way down to I-25. I thought I'd died and gone to heaven.

Denver, with 2.5 million people, does have traffic, but nothing like the horrors of back east or SoCAL.

An article I read the other day said the metro population is 2.8 million, and I don't think that's counting Boulder.

Anyway, my commute to Lone Tree is often "SoCal-like". Yesterday I left work at 1:30 and it took me an hour and 10 min. to go 20 miles. I suppose it depends on what part of the city you're in, but it's not a breeze, for the most part.

Considering Mike's post was from 2007, I bet his numbers were right back then! lol!
