I don't know exactly how long those commutes would take, but both of those would be horrid commutes. Hunter Mill/Rt. 7 is one of the most notorious backed up intersections in NOVA. Rt. 7 in general is very slow. I would seriously consider taking the bus or metro.

I live in Reston, about 1 mile west of Hunter Mill... and my wife gave birth at Sibley, so I have a lot of experience with that route!

In the morning, it will take you about 40-45 minutes if you take DTR > Chain Bridge. Don't take Chain Bridge or Rt7 down all the way... it will take you FOREVER. Spend the $1.25 in each direction. It's worth the time and sanity.

Could you somehow use Georgetown Pike/123/GW Parkway? Would that be any faster?

Noooooooo. Georgetown Pike and GW parkway get really backed up in a few places, and it's worse right now because they're doing some construction.

(Thats a great route during the off hours, however. It's a very pretty drive.)
