    Auburn to Tuscaloosa: Best route

    A Georgia Southern fan has asked me what the best route from Auburn to Tuscaloosa is and I have no clue if it's faster to go north all interstate or head towards Montgomery and take Hwy 82.

    Any advice would be appreciated

    Depending on the driver's speed, he/she can get from Auburn to Montgomery in about 45 minutes. Montgomery to Tuscaloosa is just under 2 hours. So that route will be around 3 hours.

    I had to make the drive this weekend. I actually went 280 to the interstates and got home in 2:30.

    I grew up in Opelika and travelled back and forth for years both before and during my years at the University. Mind you this is all before the stadium expansions. We always went 82 on game day to avoid B'ham. That said B'ham is an "easier" way but usually longer on game day. I would think for the slightly earlier start you'd probably need to add an hour on the time if going thru B'ham. This will probably be a game where traffic will be much more congested for a certain period of time vs. a late start where traffic has all day to come in.

    Any route that gets you out of Auburn and into Tuscaloosa is a good route. But I like going the Montgomery way.

    I live here and Auburn and the best route IMO is 280 into BHam then hit the interstate. pretty much a straight shot

    I'm heading to Tuscaloosa Friday night so gameday traffic shouldn't be a problem if that changes the fastest route. Thanks again!

    Re: Auburn to Tuscaloosa: Best route

    We live in Tuscaloosa and frequently visit friends who live in Auburn. I know, I know friends don't let friends live in Auburn!! But they insist. So, with that being said the fastest route we have found is Hwy 82 out of Montgomery. No stop lights after Prattville until Centreville and then just a couple whereas hwy 280 is nothing but stop lights. Also, its shorter distance wise than going all interstate. But, be on the lookout for State troopers they love cruising up and down Hwy 82.

    B'ham traffic, weekend before Thanksgiving and high school football playoffs. I'd ride through the country.
