Hi can anybody please tell me what is the commute time from Queen Creek to Downtown Phoenix at rush hour? Mapquest lists the commute as 47 minutes, but I'm sure that's during regular, non busy hours. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

alfaro951

Look for anything from an hour and a half, to two hours during heavy traffic.

If you want a bit of a better commute, and are flexible with your locations - Try Buckeye in the west valley. Better freeway access, although, the traffics a little worse.. But it would make your commute easier and hopefully shorter.

Buckeye will also be a long commute, traffic on I10 during commuting hours is a horrible. It will only be getting worse w/ all the new communities going up. If you have to work in Phoenix, there are some nice neighborhoods in Phoenix, the Biltmore area, Paradise Valley, the Willow District (I think it's called that?). Good luck to you.

You’re right there are many great neighborhoods in the central corridor it’s only a matter of looking for them. Each neighborhood has it’s own personality, many great homes that have been upgraded or can be upgraded with a little extra work and imagination.

An hour or more drive into the city is not only a waste of “gas money” but valuable time. I’d put the saved money into improvements and the mortgage instead of Exxon’s pocket. And the extra time saved could be spend with the family instead of looking at other drivers you don’t know in the ?? miles long parking lot call the “freeway”.


I just heard the in the news the other day that ADOT is doing a study again and planning to work on the I-10 between the 51 and the Superstition. WOW talk about shutting down some traffic????????????????????? That’s the main artery into and out of downtown.

Sorry, I don't live there, just been through a few times and thought it was a very nice area.

Yeh. ADOT is talking about a braided freeway system, like Toronto's 'awe-inspiring' 401. That said, alot of people would lean to Queen Creek simply for the point of affordability. Thats why I pointed him toward Buckeye. Because, hey, the average person like myself and many others can't afford a house in Biltmore or Willo, at least a decently updated one.
