I have been offered a job in the College Park area, and I am considering moving to Ellicott City. How bad would the commute be?

Thanks.

It depends on how flexible your work schedule. Can your work start early or late in the morning?
I commute from Ellicott City to Arlington and my commute in the morning is about 55 minutes in the morning if I leave home by 6 am. College park area is only 30 mintues commute at that hour.
If your job is regular 9 to 5, then it would be over an hour commute for you.

Do you need to enter College Park via Route One? There is a ton of construction underway on the stretch between the beltway and the University, which makes that short stretch a nightmare (particularly during rush hour). Hopefully just temporary....

I'm in a similar situation (considering moving to Ellicott City and working in Bethesda), and I was wondering how "rush hour" is typically defined for this area. What are he range of hours in the morning and evening when the commute should be avoided?

For Bethesda, I would say rush hours are between 7 to 9 am in the morning and 4 to 7 during evening hours.

Ellicott city is not much different but lesser traffic compare to Bethesda and DC metro area.
