    Anyone commuting to Rockville? Willing to pay for all gas expenses. Hours are 9 to 5. Starting in mid May.

    Any luck? Can you let me know how long it typically takes you with those hours. I have an option of working in White Oak and am contemplating due to the commute or else would have been all over it.

    Do you have to be at work by 9 ? If yes, it is going to be tough

    till then schools re-open ...it is better relatively
    from broadlands if you take the green way instead of waxpool-28, you save 15+ mins in the AM
    if you start by 745 -8 the avg time to reach RV is closer to one hour
    you will have take some detours to save time - instead of getting to 495 via 267 ( exit 18) which takes forever, take the exit 17 (springhill rd) and go past freddie mac all the way to the express lanes exit (you will end up paying 50 cents or more in toll ( 1 dollar exit + express lane toll(around 1.75 at that time) vs 2.50 to get off 267 before 495)

    on 494 it is usually bumper to bumper till you pass the legion bridge and then 270 N is virtually a breeze
    my guess is if you have to white oak, you will have to continue on 495 N which can get heavier after the spur
    once the schools re-open, add avg 20 mins to your commute...at that time even toll rd gets backed up

    due to off shore meetings, flex timings I start after 9 (using 28 S) and am at RV by 10.

    Don't have to be there at 9 but as I have to drop off the kids in the morning to school #7:30, I figured it is probably the time I will reach around there.

    Seems like it will be a brutal 1.5 hr commute if I take the toll road.
