Somewhere, or sometime, down the road?

If you’re talking about doing something in the future, do you say “somewhere down the road”, or “sometime down the road”?


Interesting question! My first instinct is that both make sense, in different senses. “somewhere down the road” means to me something like “at some point along this metaphorical road that is the future.” I think that’s the way I would say it. But “some time down the road” makes sense too; I wouldn’t be confused if I heard it. But my gut tells me it’s less common.

This ngram seems to support that conclusion:
