Rush hour traffic into Minneapolis

We will be moving our daughter into Minneapolis College of Art & Design in August, and when visiting, have always stayed downtown, as it was only a night or 2. This time will be there for 4 nights and am trying to save a little money. We found a Super 8 in Golden Valley, right off I-394, with good reviews and a very reasonable price. I am concerned about rush hour traffic on her Friday move-in day. What time does rush hour end, or do I really need to be worried about it? The other 2 days we'd be driving in would be the weekend, so I'm not concerned about that. Thanks.

by 9 a.m. it should be ok, but honestly, the rush hour traffic is very manageable in the twin cities. other big cities have it much worse.

you'll be travelling a short distance on 394 from that hotel to downtown

I agree. Traffic won't be bad. It is even a little lighter than normal in August, when many families take their summer vacations.

The MCAD site has good directions for you (coming from the west on 394). Just be sure to stay to the right on 394--the Dunwoody/Hennepin exit has an exit only lane off 394.
