New Jersey Site of Most Congested Trucking Bottleneck

Traveling from New Jersey into New York City remains one of the most difficult things a professional driver can do. That’s because the intersection of Interstate 95 and State Route 4 in Lee, New Jersey is the most congested trucking bottleneck of any of the 100 identified by the American Transportation Research Institute (ATRI).

This intersection has been named #1 most congested for the sixth year in a row. Other locales listed in ATRI’s annual list highlighting the worst trucking bottlenecks in the U.S. are shown below. To find out the remaining most congested areas, continue reading below.

Texas leads all states with the largest number of trucking bottlenecks with 13. Georgia follows with nine,  California has eight, Tennessee has seven, and Illinois and Washington each have six.

The 2024 Top Truck Bottleneck List measures the level of truck-involved congestion at over 325 locations on the national highway system.  The analysis, based on what ATRI said is an extensive database of freight truck GPS data, uses several customized software applications and analysis methods, along with terabytes of data from thousands of trucking operations to produce a congestion impact ranking for each location. The bottleneck locations detailed in this latest ATRI list represent the top 100 congested locations from the more than 325 freight-critical locations continuously monitored by ATRI.
