The most congested roadway for truckers in the United States is Atlanta’s “Spaghetti Junction,” at which Interstates 285 and 85 North meet. It was the second year in a row this intersection topped the annual list.
Moving goods through town and across the country and moving them quickly and efficiently is key to sustainable commerce. Therefore, it is important for commercial motor vehicle operators to know which roads are the most congested and how to avoid known bottlenecks.
The American Transportation Research Institute (ATRI) last week released its annual list highlighting the 100 most congested bottlenecks for truckers in America. Chris Spear, president of the American Trucking Association, said he hopes the data can help President Donald Trump allocate funds for important projects and be a “key guide for deciding what projects are worthy of funding.”
“Ensuring the safe and efficient movement of goods should be a national priority and this report draws attention to the places where our highway network needs improvement in order to meet that goal,” Spear said.
ATRI has collected and processed GPS fleet tracking data since 2002 to make its calculations.
