The American Transportation Research Institute (ATRI) has published the top 100 commercial vehicle bottlenecks in the country.
These are roadways which are consistently the most jammed-up across America. The states with the most bottlenecks include California, Texas, Washington, Minnesota, Ohio, Tennessee, Georgia, Pennsylvania, New York, and Connecticut.
The group notes "Congestion costs the economy. ATRI research identified trucking industry costs of $49.6 billion as a result of congestion on the nation's highways. That cost generates from 728 million lost hours at industry productivity, the equivalent of 264,500 truck drivers sitting still for an entire year."
Their brochure on the latest study states, in part,
"Since 2002, the American Transportation
Research Institute (ATRI) has collected and
processed truck GPS data in support of the
Federal Highway Administration's Freight
Performance Measures (FPM) initiative. The FPM
program develops and monitors a series of key
performance measures on the nation's freight
"The information provided through this effort
can empower policy and investment decision-
making in the private and public sectors
by providing stakeholders with a better
understanding of the severity of congestion
and mobility constraints on the U.S. highway
transportation system. This is critical as the
nation weighs the resources needed to maintain
the country's freight transportation network."
In 2012, the State of Illinois commenced work
on the reconstruction of the Chicago Circle
Interchange based on its ATRI ranking as the
nation's #1 bottleneck. The $500 million project
is expected to be completed by 2019."
Here are the top 30 bottlenecks. Note that #26 on the list, I-10 at I-15 (they list it as 'San Bernardino, CA' but it's actually Ontario Calif.) That is exactly where this horrible accident occutred, which I wrote about in 2012:

Craziest Black Ice Close-Call Crash You'll Ever See A motorist captured an incredibly horrific crash on the New Jersey Turnpike January 18th, 2015.
