Determing Local Commutes in the Twin Cities

So you’re thinking about moving into a new house. One thing you want to consider is your daily commute to work. If you want a rough stimate, consider checking out MapQuest or Google Maps each will give a route, miles traveled, and estimated time.

If you want to factor in traffic and construction as well, check out 511; it gives real time traffic reports. If I were really interested I would periodically check 511 during the times I expected to travel to see if any of my major routes were consistently trouble spots.
