North/South 680 Commute Question

I've lived in this area or many years but have never had to go in this direction at commute time. How bad is it and when is it bad? I have a chance at a job that is in Dublin, I would be getting off at around 3:15 to head home to Walnut Creek area. My start time I think would be around 8:30am so I would have to leave around 7:45am? Am I right that the return trip would be easier? Any commuters seeing this? Thanks.

The traffic on 680 is very bad during commute times, and it already starts to get heavy at 3:30 PM. Whether 45 minutes is enough time obviously depends where in Walnut Creek you live. If you live near the Rudgear Road entrance to 680, 45 minutes is more than enough time. If you live out near Northgate High School, an hour is a more reasonable time-frame.
