Forbes: America's Most Congested Cities and Worst Intersections
Forbes released their annual most congested cities and worst intersections list today.
Most Congested Cities
Of the top five most congested cities, in order are; LA, NYC, Chicago, Dallas, DC.
The study found that the worst hour to drive in was 5pm on Thursday for LA and 5pm Friday on Friday for NYC. The report also discusses trends about how congestion has fallen for all cities compared to the 2008 results and that a slower economy could lead to a faster commute. Keep in mind, that is not an appropriate TDM tool.
Notably some cities TDM tools have worked, Atlanta, reduced congestion by 36% with suburban park and ride initiatives funded by federal dollars.
As for intersections, the Hollywood Freeway has 11 of the top 100 worst interchanges.
