Can someone in the area give me an idea of how long it will take to get from Roanoke to Carrollton (Midway/Belt Line)? A couple weeks ago we were in the area looking at apartments in Lewisville, but Roanoke has a good bit of houses that we could afford. I know distance wise Lewisville is closer, but with traffic is the time from Roanoke that much more?

It will really depend on what time of day you have to travel.

If you are leaving earlier than the normal rush, say no later than 6:30 AM and 3:30 PM, then you can probably do it in 30 minutes or less if there are no accidents and no construction. Or if you are working opposite shifts than most people.

If it's at all during the middle rush hour, then you could be looking at closer to an hour and even longer if there is an accident or construction.

Actual distance doesn't mean much here when it comes to travel time. It's all about the traffic patterns and timing.

With the Grapevine Funnel reconstruction looming, keep in mind that most of your commute will be through a construction zone for the next 5 years. http://www.dallasmobility.org/Newsroom/FWST%205-27-09%20Makeover%20of%20Grapevine%20freeways%20is%20e xpected%20to%20be%20completed%20by%202014%20state% 20official%20says.pdf (broken link)

I woudl honestly look at Coppell, Lewisville, or north Irving instead.
