Rush hour traffic from Buckhead to Alpharetta

Hi:

Moving to the Buckhead GA area (I think) and will be working in Alpharetta. Can someone tell me how long it will take in the AM and PM traffic? I've heard so many variations. Thanks

It's a reverse commute so rush hour won't have too much impact. Whatever Google maps says is probably accurate.

Probably a half hour or so.

There can be an accident at any time in any direction on 400...

but JAtlanta is right. The reverse commute should be an easy one. Plus, depending on your starting and end points, MARTA may be an option too.

As companies have moved north, traffic has gotten progressively harder, but it's not as bad as going into and out of town. Which exit? Windward Pkwy (exit 11) is technology corridor and backs up onto 400, but there are alternate ways to get where you need to go

It probably going to take from 30-60 mins. Depends what exit and where in each community you will be. 400 is notorious for crazy traffic. Technically you are going against traffic but that's just a theory :) Anything past exit 11on 400 adds a lot more time since 400 changes to 2 lanes. Buckhead has its own traffic nightmares. Atlanta is a great place to live
