The American Transportation Research Institute (ATRI) released the latest findings of its annual list of the top truck freight congestion locations.
The 2015 Congestion Impact Analysis of Freight-Significant Highway Locations assesses the level of truck-oriented congestion at 250 locations on the national highway system and uses several customized software applications and analysis methods and data to produce a congestion impact ranking for each location.
This year, the most congested location is the Tom Moreland Interchange in Atlanta, Ga. The location is known to commuters as “Spaghetti Junction” and is a five-level stack interchange at the intersection of I-285 and I-85.
However, ATRI noted, four out of the top 10 worst locations are in Houston, Texas.
The top 10 locations on the ATRI list this year are:
- ATLANTA, GA: I-285 AT I-85 (NORTH)
- CHICAGO, IL: I-290 AT I-90/I-94
- FORT LEE, NJ: I-95 AT SR 4
