Hi all,

I am going to be moving to Hampton Roads and would like to know about the commute times. There is a complex called Harbour Breeze that I find interesting. I must be at work at 7 AM.

How long is the commute from northern Suffolk to Portsmouth?

Also, what about Chesapeake? I know VB is too long due to bridge and tunnel traffic, but is the commute from Chesapeake long? And I mean more than 30 mins? I really want to avoid sitting in traffic for an hour.

Thanks

Harbour Breeze is nice. Now, for the shipyard commute.....
Your commute depends on tunnel traffic, but there are backways you can take. My office is in Chesapeake and I just take military to Geo. Washington Hwy to the backside of the shipyard. From VB, I take the interstate to military hwy and the GW to the shipyard, bypassing the tunnel. I consider the back way shorter, as if there is a backup, that will add to your commute time and if you want to stop for coffee or a quick pick up breakfast, it's right on the way!
