So far I've managed to avoid the worst of the rush hour traffic in Louisville but I'm going to be starting a new job soon and was hoping for some advice on my new commute. I'll be traveling from the LaGrange Rd/Pewee Valley area to and from Dixie Highway, just south of the Watterson. My morning drive will start at 8ish and I'll head home at 5pm. What would be the easiest/fastest route? Google maps tells me to take the Snyder to 64 to the Watterson to Dixie, but I don't know what rush hour traffic looks like in those areas. Would it be faster to take another route? Thanks in advance!

Hey notthatgirl
That is a bit of a hairy ride to be honest...
You will be facing traffic on Snyder, quite a bit on 64 and a bit on the Watterson.
Traffic is all relative...to someone from LA...it is nothing..
If you left at 8, you would probably get there at 845 I would guess depending on where you are going on Dixie.
However, my parents commute from around your house to downtown and it only takes them about 20-30 min in the morning. They know "pockets" of time where the traffic dies down for a bit. They also know what time to leave if they need to get to work very early.

Hope that helped a little. Anyone feel free to correct me if I am wrong.
Thanks.

I think MDCB has hit it about right. I was going to guess 45 minutes door-to-door, assuming normal rush hour traffic. The problem is, as was pointed out, traffic in those areas at that time is anything but normal!

I don't think it will be quite the nightmare you think it is because you'll be going "against" the rush of traffic. You'll be heading EAST on I-264 in the and NORTH on I-265 in the mornings. Most of the traffic in the morning is headed WEST (from Shelby county) on I-64 in the morning.

Ah, good point, I think. Still, 45 minutes is a good estimate. What that really means is that she'll miss most of the extra-ordinary problems.
