Avoiding traffic help

I will be driving from the Charlotte airport to the Matthews are next Wednesday night around 730pm. Which highways will have the worst traffic at that time? I want to avoid those and Google maps gives me a few different routes to choose from. Thanks!

At 7:30, you'll be just fine taking the most direct route - Wilkinson Blvd to I-277 to Independence Blvd. Independence is a freeway until Sharon Amity, and after that there are some traffic lights, but they are far apart. 7:30 is well past rush hour in this town.

I-485

I think Brian's suggestion is better.

If you have an access to internet, you can check live traffic on several websites...

just in case the I-485 is good...
