It's Not Necessarily About the Traffic On the Road

Based upon that widely accepted explanation of rush hour, we officially close the debate on whether or not Grand Junction actually has a "rush hour." I must point out the fact that we aren't necessarily talking about traffic, rather about the time of day when traffic is heavy. If you ever try to get gas during rush hour or stop for a sandwich in the drive-thru on the way home, you may experience the effects of the rush hour. There is definitely a larger volume of people on the road, at the gas pumps, and in the drive-thru.

Grand Junction certainly does have a rush hour, but exactly how bad remains open to debate.
