This is a sampling of drive times (shown in minutes) taken as part of an ongoing study by the city's Public Works and Transportation Department. The data shows the time it takes to travel to various points before and after light synchronization. Transportation officials caution that these times vary according to traffic flow and time of day. Peak morning hours are typically 6:30 to 9am, while peak afternoon hours are between 3:30 and 7pm.
