We are relocating soon and need to know how bad the commute is. What about Hwy 116 and 55 vs 94 and 494?? Help!

I don't live in the area (yet), so this is hearsay -- but I did ask a similar question not too long ago about a commute from Rogers to Plymouth. The responses I got were along the lines of "don't even think about it", "absolutely horrible", etc ... as I recall, one person even said that commute along I-94 is the worst in the country between Chicago and the west coast. But don't take my word for it since, like I said, I don't even live there.

We went up to St. Cloud yesterday, 696 to 94, it took us 30 minutes to go 7 miles at the 694-94 interchange and beyond (north). The southbound lanes weren't any better. 94 was a parking lot all the way to Albertville. This was at 1:30 in the afternoon.

Don't count on going North real fast on Friday afternoon in the summer.

Very true. A couple of weeks ago a friend and I were going out of town and it took us 2 hours that Friday to go from 694 by the Mississippi River to Albertville, a distance of maybe 20 miles? We were heading North, but the Southbound lanes were pretty much totally stopped too. And that was in the early afternoon, from about 1:30 to 3:30 PM. We saw 2 minor fender-benders (heading north) and 3 cars pulled off the shoulder heading south (2 had flat tires) in those 20 miles and that seemed to be the causes of the huge delays.
