I have a job potential near CPCC (I-77, 9a, then 2b I think it is from 277). The hours are 8-5 with little chance to changing that.

What commute time would I be looking at if I lived in Tega Cay? I have a son in daycare so I'm worried that the commute will be so horrendous he'll have to spend even more time in daycare then I would like.

Please advise what I can expect on a typical day.

I do plan to try the commute next week, but I know one day isn't always enough to show a real commute day.

Thanks!

Tegay Cay to uptown is actually not that bad...CPCC is on the other side of uptown though which adds a couple of minutes.

At that time of the day...With no accidents it could take 15-20 minutes from Tega Cay on Gold Hill to I77 pending on how far back you live... And it will back up at I77...It is approx 18 miles to Uptown, and in the am it will take 30-45 minutes depending on the backup at I77 and I485. Then add another few minutes from I277 to 3rd/4th street to CPCC. So I would plan on an hour. Maybe less if there are no backups and the stars and planets are alingned...

There is an express bus that stops at carowinds and goes uptown...but then you would have to get from the center of Uptown to CPCC.

My drive from Rock Hill (exit 82 on 77) takes me approx 45 minutes with traffic, some days only 30 minutes. I take 77 to 277 to independence. If that helps at all...

I drove that commute for the better part of a year, and I think you can count on an average of 45 minutes. Yes, it gets backed up at 77 and 485, but on average it takes 4 minutes to get through that. It just looks brutal. Believe me, I time it to the minute because I catch the train at Woodlawn and seconds can make the difference!
