Just looking to get an overall perspective at how far some of you guys commute to and from work each day. New to the area and have found that homes in the Fort Worth / White Settlement region are just to close. I am currently living and work in White Settlement. How far is Joe Pool lake/Mansfield area from there? Does anyone make a trip similar per day to and from?

I used to live in Mansfield and had to go to JAS a few times during my time there. I went during off-peak hours and it was still an awful drive. I wouldn't recommend it.

Now I have a 7 minute commute from Addison to Plano Can't beat that.

My current commute is approx. 30 minutes.
Joe Pool Lake is South of I-20
Between Arlington/Mansfield and Cedar Hill.
I have seen some nice homes around that area. If you want some acreage or
more elbow room between homes you may consider looking towards Benbrook while there is
still open land.
You may consider lake benbrook, also south of I-20 but closer to White Settlement.
The southwest corridor of Fort worth will be getting a tollway.
The developers will eventually build up every possible inch of land for their housing and building projects for the next generation.

32 miles one way, about 45 minutes (on a good day) from N. Fort Worth to Las Colinas (170 to 114).

1.8 miles - next best thing to working from home - live in the Heritage community in north FW; work on 377, right outside the Heritage community. I go home at lunch time to take my dog out, and take a break in the afternoon to pick my son up from school, and then back to the office. Love it
