Well, my goodness. There is something called walking or taking a cab. If you don't like things somewhere, don't go there!

That depends on where you are coming from. LA? No traffic. Atlanta? Light traffic. If you are coming from a smaller city like my home town in Virginia, then you will think there is heavy traffic.

My business takes me all over the city at all times of morning and evening. Add an extra 15-30 minutes to any drive, depending on the timing, the weather and if there is an accident. I have sailed across the Buckman Bridge in 5:00 traffic, and it has taken me 45 minutes across the Buckman when there is an accident.

Big secret - and this is true in any city (except LA and Atlanta) - find the pockets when traffic eases up and if your work schedule is a bit flexible, or you can go in before the am rush, you will be set.

Tip for Jax - the Navy and insurance companies get off work early, so expect busy roads around 3 PM.

Which parts are better? Heading up Philips Highway towards I-95 traffic flows well. Heading south on I-95 from north of the city isn't quite as busy, and I-10 heading into downtown is a good commute. Butler Blvd. flows pretty well, but there is a bottle neck connecting onto I-95.

There is more than traffic flow to consider when buying a house - you have to consider your lifestyle.

Hope this is helpful to you. Please let us know if you have any other questions.

Best regards,

We have rush hour trafic from 6 to 8 AM and 4 to 6 PM. Our rush hour is a lot lighter than most other areas of the USA.

The only consideration I give to relocation folk is look at where they are goiing to work. The St. Johns river runs through the city. If you work downtown, you are best to stay east of the river (between the ocean and the river). That way the bridge trafic does not get in the way, and that can be serious. ... more

Convenient to I-95, 9A and Arlington Expressway. Arlington is located in an area that is very convenient to Downtown.
