Drive Times & Information

The rush hour generally lasts from 6-9:00 a.m. and from 3-7:00 p.m. Much of this time traffic runs smoothly, if slowly. Accidents can slow things down a little or a great deal. Reporters will occasionally refer to a slow-down as a “Sigalert.” When you hear this, prepare for additional travel time and study your freeway map to find another route if possible.

Tune to radio station KNX 1070 AM for updated traffic information every 10 minutes.
