Hi all,
I've been presented with a great job offer in Fort Snelling, MN. The problem is that my husband has a job that requires him to live within 15-20 minutes of Mankato, MN. I'm wondering what the commute would be like from either Mankato or St. Peter to Fort Snelling everyday? Is there bad traffic? Are the roads well maintained? I have small children so I don't want to take the job thinking my commute would be an hour + and then find out that with traffic it is closer to 2 hours. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Maybe conditions have changed, but when I had to drive that for work ten years ago it was an hour and half to two hour commute. I live a couple miles from Fort Snelling and had to commute to Mankato a couple of times each week over a 3 month period. It was scenic, but I'm glad not to be doing that anymore.

Mankato to Fort Snelling would be 1 1/2 hours on a good day. St. Peter would shorten that by about 15 minutes. Factor in weather, open freeways, snow, ice, not a good idea.
