Commuting to Nashville

Recommended Posts

I am thinking of buying a home in Spring Hill in the near future, but might wind up with a job in Nashville. I am seeking some advice/comments on whether this is a reasonable commute. I know it's a little under 40 miles each way, but what kind of traffic will I hit during rush hour? I don't mind a one-hour commute, but if it's more like 90+ minutes each way, that might make me reconsider working in Nashville (or perhaps reconsider living in Spring Hill!)

Well, one thing's for sure, you wouldn't be alone on the road. I can't imagine it being more than an hour, probably quite a bit less. That's not my route, so I can't say for sure. Anyone out there know more about it? 90 minutes seems a bit extreme.

Most likely depends on the time of day too. If it's I-65 (which I don't know why it wouldn't be) then he will have traffic. But like Dave said, you wouldn't be alone. LOL!!

Commuting from Franklin takes about 30-35 minutes, so I would say about 40-50 minutes, depending on how long it will take you to get to I-65. Tell me the general area of Spring Hill and I could help you a little more.

It would be in the area of Columbia Pike (Rt 31) and Duplex Rd, on the border of Maury Cty...

I'd say 40 minutes. 50 tops. That is a guess, but I think that would be right about dead on. I may be wrong though.

thats about how long it took...45 min. sounds right

I notice on this site that construction is underway on a commuter rail system. That would be a nice option, assuming they eventually build the entire system, including the line that runs south from Nashville through Williamson County. Maybe it's just me, but it seems like a no-brainer to build those rail lines and give commuters the option to ride....I'd much rather work in Nashville than at some suburban office...

OK, I know exactly where you are talking about. My church is right near there. Yeah, it'll take about 45-50 minutes. That is, if you miss Independence traffic. If you get it, then that'll add about 5-10 minutes.
