My husband and I are moving back to the Midcities and are debating moving either to NRH or the Keller area. Just wondering how the traffic is at around 0600 driving from either of these areas to Baylor of Grapevine. We both have to be at the hospital @ 0630.

at 6am you can most likely make it Baylor Grapevine in 20 minutes on 1709. There is really no traffic at that time of day. (MY hubby can make it to Irving in 30minutes at 7am)
If traffic bogs down on 1709, you can jump over to 114 at Whites Chapel rd.
During heavy traffic it takes just under 45 minutes.

You also might want to consider Trophey Club. It sits right on 114 and has a Baylor facility there too. it would take you about 15-20 minutes max to get to Baylor Grapevine from there.

NRH would be a bit longer than Keller, but not much depending on where in NRH. you can go eith up Davis to 1709, or take 29 to 114. maybe 30minutes?

The time of day you are going is excellent so I wouldn't worry about the traffic in either place. If your times change and you are going in around 8-9am then you will increase you time but not by much (maybe 15minutes)

What is your price range? schools important? housing size? lot size?
I'd also suggest Grapevine/Colleyville both are very good communites and Southlake (but it is more$$$)

if you mean 6 AM it is probably not that bad--depending on how you go--

1709/southlake Blvd (3-4 lanes) feeds into 114/NW Hwy interchange close to Baylor
or you can catch 114 Eastbound if you are closer to that

Union Church/ Continental Ave (east /west around Sky Creek Ranch Golf course) moves pretty quickly--not many lights and maybe two stop signs--but it is only 2 lanes and is twisty--it merges into Kimball ave in Southlake and then into Ira Woods/Hwy 26 just south of the 114 interchange (and Baylor)

if you are in Woodland Springs area of Keller Golden Triangle Blvd becomes 1709/Southlakd Blvd east of 377

in NRH--if you are close go N on Grapevine Hwy/Hwy 26--that turns into Ira Woods in Grapevine and passes just a block from Baylor--2-3 lanes w/turn lane--not many lights--people go pretty fast --
If you are closer to 183 then take that east to 121-N into Grapevine
that early in the morning the traffic is still flowing pretty easily and you can make pretty good time I think

Cheek-Sparger east bound to 121 and even past that to airport and beyond gets lot of traffic in the morning and by 7:30 there can be a line of cars 25-30 vehicles long east bound at the stop sign at Central and Cheek Sparger in Bedford--it is tedious then but early morning is still pretty quick
the speed limit is 30 or 35 police from colleyville and bedford patrol it at times ...

depending on where you are in either town--it could be less than 30 or closer to 45--
