Although only 10 miles from Boston, the commute to the city can be difficult because no highway goes in a straight route from Dedham to Boston. Commuters can either take I-93N, I-95 N and I-90 E, or take a direct route to the city on local streets. All of the routes take about 30 minutes and traffic is variable, so commuters should check traffic reports before making the drive.
