The two most frequently used roads to travel north from Queen Creek/San Tan Valley are Ellsworth and Ironwood. Ellsworth is often used to access the 202 freeway and it is between 15-30 minutes for much of the area. Ironwood is a few miles east and offers a direct path to the 60 Freeway. Again about the same time depending of course where you are starting from.
I happen to live in Queen Creek myself so I understand the area very well. Maybe we should have a phone conversation to discuss the area etc.
Is someone looking to commute to a job?
