Three bottlenecks make list

Indianapolis is home to three of the top 100 truck traffic bottleneck sites in the nation, according to the American Transportation Research Institute’s 2017 Top Truck Bottleneck List.

Interstate 65 northbound at I-70 ranked as 34th most congested. The southbound side of that same intersection ranked as 38th most congested. Also on the list was I-465 at I-69, which ranked 100th.

The three most congested sites in the nation are in Atlanta (I-285 at I-85 northbound); Fort Lee, New Jersey (I-95 at NJ 4); and Chicago (I-290 at I-90/I-94).

Rankings are based on an analysis of truck speed and position data at 250 highway locations.

The American Transportation Research Institute, a not-for-profit research organization for the trucking industry, has produced the report annually since 2002.•
