I will have to start there working 7 pm - 7 am, so traffic will be an issue. Once I can get on Days after about a year, it should be a piece of cake, reverse flow.

My question is, how bad will it be that first year? Leaving Clinton at 6 PM, will I make it to Allentown by 7 PM or is that unreasonable? And how about the morning, I will probably be leaving LVH at 7:30 AM, how long until I hit Clinton?

Thanks much!

I will advise against you leaving Clinton around 6pm because 78 can get really backed up around that time...I have been stuck in traffic on 78 a few times around 7.00pm so I really doubt you could make it everyday on time if you leave at 6pm.

On the other hand it might be more easier when you leave at 7.30am heading back....might encounter a few Sunday drivers in the fast lane doing 15mph.

I doubt there will be any other alternative other than leaving Clinton a little earlier maybe around 3.00pm or 3.30pm...hopefully someone who has really been doing this on a daily basis might chip in..but anyways just my $0.02.

Good Luck with the new job
