Can anyone who drives to work during regular work hours - from the Mirabay / Harbour Isles are in Apollo Beach to Frontage Road area in Tampa, tell me what that drive is like? What is the average commute time? What times are rush hour in a.m. and p.m. and how long does rush hour last? Is it a tough drive or relatively easy?

you are probably looking at 45 min/30min depending. The maddening thing about this area is that is somewhat unpredictable, blue collar workers can start work at 6am in some places, so am rush hour starts early, then you have your usual 9-5 crowd, so the morning is pretty spread out, 6-930 but is never too bad the only bad parts that i seen is 4 going west when it merges to 275 and the howard frankland bridge going into tampa. Your communte would be halfway reversed, meaning most people from your area will turn west @ the crosstown so once you hit brandon on 75 you should be homefree, in the afternoon you will be pretty good until you hit brandon then you would join the other commuters going south, but 75 doesnt get too bad, at worst you would be going 50.

Thanks for the responses. I thought 41 was the more likely route, as Harbour Isles is on 41. DUNNDFRNT - it sounds like you are thinking 75. Is 75 a better choice?

Also, if taking 41 from Harbour Isles to the Frontage Rd area, what's that like re traffic, commute time, rush hour, etc?

What "frontage road" area are you describing?

Going up 41 to 60 is pretty quick if you're going to the downtown area.

The worst part about this drive is the TRAINS. I would leave an extra 15minutes earlier than what an average commute would be... The average commute is 45 minutes from Apollo Beach to Frontage RD.

41 is the way to go, you would be going way out of your way if you went I75 to I4. Like the other poster said, you might get stopped by a train before you hit causeway blvd. If you do, youre screwed, so plan for it.

Well, I didn't know about trains. Where would that be and why would I be screwed. Does it take forever to go by or just the stopping of traffic cause huge delays?
