ATRI Annual List of Top 100 Truck Bottlenecks for 2020

The American Transportation Research Institute (ATRI) recently released its annual list of Top 100 Truck Bottlenecks 2020, highlighting the most congested highway locations for commercial motor vehicles in America.

How This List Is Made

The 2020 Top Truck Bottleneck List assesses the level of truck-involved congestion at 300 locations on the U.S. national highway system. The analysis is based on truck GPS data from over 1 million heavy duty trucks.  The data is based on several customized software applications and analysis methods, along with terabytes of data from trucking operations to produce a congestion impact ranking for each location.

Why Is It Important

ATRI’s truck GPS data is also used to support the U.S. DOT’s Freight Mobility Initiative. The bottleneck locations detailed in this latest ATRI list represent the top 100 congested locations, although ATRI continuously monitors more than 300 freight-critical locations.
