I lived in PA many years ago and 422 was always a nightmare. Has that changed at all with the new direct connection to I76 at route 202? Im looking at commuting from Audubon to City line Ave in Narberth. According to google maps it is 20 miles and 30 minutes but would the traffic on 422 make this much worse? I expect to hit traffic on the schuylkill from the conshohocken curve to city line but wasnt sure how 422 was nowadays.

Thanks!

422 is brutal......Going eastbound in the AM - 422 usually backs up all the way to collegeville down to the 76/202 merge. Westbound in the PM is usually backed up from the schuylkill to Trooper at least. It will take you a while.

Right!

We just moved from Royersford, where my husband commuted into Philly each day - HORRIBLE!! He left at 6 a.m. and didn't have much delay getting in, but coming home was a nightmare, unless he left after 7 p.m.

No the commute is not any better...probably worse with more housing & development along 422.
If you could live closer to Narberth, it would be better. Or maybe there are some good back roads routes to take. May not lessen the time spent, but may be more pleasant than 76/422 trip!

According to traffic.com this morning, 422 was backed up from Collegeville to the Rt 23 exit on 422. Coming from Audubon, I could get on 422 at the Trooper exit, and from there its only a mile to the R 23 exit. This seems like I would miss most of the traffic. Is this true or was todays backup unusual for 422? From there it was green on the maps all the way to City Line Ave on 76.

I am usually going the other direction nursing_girl - but from what I can tell 76E in the morning is pretty bad from 202/422 all the way down to Belmont. In the evening, 76W looks even worse. As always, some days are going to be better than others but I just think the commute day in and day out would wear on you.
