REPORT 2

congestion and highways
The most congested metro areas in the U.S.

O

ur industry depends on completing moves on time
and keeping consumers happy. A couple of reports
from Inrix highlight the worst places in the U.S.
for traffic, as well as a list of the most congested
corridors over the past year.
This year again Los Angeles tops the list of worst traffic
areas, with drivers spending a total of 104 hours annually stuck
in traffic. Additionally, this congestion costs drivers in LA an
average of $2,408 in time wasted, and the city takes a hit of
$9.7 billion dollars. None of the other cities on the list breaks
the 100-hour mark, but New York City takes the top spot for
biggest cost to the city. Traffic in the region costs NYC an
average of $16.9 billion dollars per year in productivity.
The second report we look at from Inrix is a list of the
most congested roads in the U.S. Not surprisingly, many of
the roads on this list are sections that are in the New York
City metro area. Of the top 10 most congested, five of the
roads listed are in NYC with the top section costing drivers
86 hours of delay annually. The list is split evenly between
a.m. and p.m. rush hour traffic problems, meaning in some
areas, traffic is unavoidable.
