The American Transportation Research Institute (ATRI) released its annual list highlighting the most congested bottlenecks for trucks in the United States.
The 2017 Top Truck Bottleneck List assesses the level of truck-oriented congestion at 250 locations on the national highway system. The analysis, based on truck GPS data from 600,000+ heavy duty trucks uses several customized software applications and analysis methods, along with terabytes of data from trucking operations to produce a congestion impact ranking for each location.
For the second straight year, Atlanta’s “Spaghetti Junction,” the intersection of Interstates 285 and 85 North is the most congested freight bottleneck in the country. The rest of the Top 5 includes:
• I-95 at State Route 4 in Fort Lee, New Jersey
• I-290 at I-90/94 in Chicago
• I-65 at I-64/71 in Louisville, Kentucky
• I-71 at I-75 in Cincinnati
The data is associated with the FHWA-sponsored Freight Performance Measures initiative. The locations detailed in this latest ATRI list represent the top 100 congested locations.
