I finally committed myself to Houston. Now I've begun the all-so-joyous apartment hunt -- from St. Louis.

Generally speaking, how is traffic on the Westpark Tollway? If I'm coming from Westchase or even more specifically Gessner @ Westpark Tollway, how long of a commute do you think I could expect on a daily basis? The all-knowing Google approximates it at 14.8 miles and 24 minutes not taking into account traffic.

Also I'm looking at a map for the tollway, it looks like I'd be paying $0.35 to get onto the tollway at Gessner and $0.35 to get off of it at HWY 59. Is that right?

Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

The trafic depends on which hour you take the tollway
