ATRI Releases Annual List Of Top Truck Freight Congestion Locations

The American Transportation Research Institute has released its annual truck bottleneck report, The 2015 Congestion Impact Analysis of Freight-Significant Highway Locations. Assessing the level of truck-oriented congestion at 250 locations on the national highway system using customized software, analysis methods, and terabytes of data from trucking, the report details the top 100 congested locations.

“With a robust economy comes increased demand for consumer goods, the lion’s share of which is carried by truck. We see that reflected in the ATRI truck bottleneck list as more trucks move through the nation’s major metropolitan areas to deliver the goods,” said Ed Crowell, Georgia Motor Trucking Association President and CEO. “ATRI’s ranking allows states to better understand where targeted infrastructure improvements could keep the economy moving.”
