I recently relocated to the area and will be taking a job with UT Health Science Center. I currently live on lackland and am looking for input regarding how long my commute will be to and from work each day, miles wise it only looks about 13 miles, but i know traffic can be bad on 410. Thanks for the input!

You currently live on Lackland? Why not just drive up there one day and see?
I can tell you it's not going to be a fun 13 miles, but not as bad as going the other direction.

And much depends on the time of day that you'll be driving the route. I come into Lackland from the Helotes area and can get here in under 25 minutes; but I leave at 5:30 in the morning!

Cheers! M2

I'd try that drive - leave at about 7:15 and see if you can get to your parking spot and then trudge to your office by 8:00. (I'm assuming you'll be on main campus.)

What part of Lackland? You might be better off going 90 East to I-10 West, then you can exit Medical Drive, take a right an you go right by the UTHSCSA no need to navigate 410 and it's construction. That's a reverse commute, most people are going the other way on I-10 during commute times. I doubt it will be too bad.

The worst is going to be getting across Fredericksburg on Medical.

I live next to lackland and go to utsa everyday. thats a little further than the medical center. Takes me 30 mins from 90 and 410 area to utsa. Its really not that bad unless you are going between 7 am and 8 Am then you will be stuck in traffic for an hour Beginning on culebra and 410 all the way to I10 and 410. Also on your way back home anytime betwwen 4 and 6 pm will be pretty bad.
If you choose to take the other route off 90 east through downtown and then I10 west, traffic is not that much better during rush hours.

Hopefully you dont have those morning hours, and you will be just fine. Im doing alot better now that I dont have that morning class.
