2018 Top 100 Truck Bottleneck List

Top 100 most congested areas of the country for truck traffic 

ATRI’S ongoing truck bottleneck analysis quantifies the impact of traffic congestion on truck-borne freight at 300 specific locations.  Measuring the performance of freight movement across our nation’s highways is critical to understanding where and at what level investment should be made.  The information provided through this effort can empower decision-making in both the private and public sectors by helping stakeholders better understand the severity of congestion and mobility constraints on the U.S. highway transportation system.  This is of particular importance as the nation weighs the needs and resources available for transportation funding.  On a state and local level, this research can inform local investment decisions that can directly improve supply chain efficiency. 

For the dispatcher and driver, this information can be helpful in planning, pricing and delivering loads through these areas or adjusting in order to avoid certain areas as deadlines may dictate.
