Minnesota Makes ATRI's List of Top 100 Truck Bottlenecks

The American Transportation Research Institute recently released its 2023 Top Truck Bottleneck list, measuring the level of truck-involved congestion at over 300 locations on the national highway system.

Minnesota made the list for three locations this year:

  • 50. Minneapolis - St. Paul, MN: I-35E at I-94

  • 55. Minneapolis - St. Paul, MN: I-35W at I-494

  • 98. Minneapolis - St. Paul, MN: I-35W at I-94

Based on an extensive database of freight truck GPS data, the analysis uses several customized software applications and analysis methods, along with terabytes of data from trucking operations to produce a congestion impact ranking for each location. ATRI's truck GPS data is also used to support numerous state and federal freight mobility initiatives.

For the fifth year in a row, the intersection of I-95 and SR 4 in Fort Lee, New Jersey is once again the Number One freight bottleneck in the country. The remaining Top 10 bottlenecks include:

  1. Fort Lee, NJ I-95 and SR 4

  2. Chicago: I-294 at I-290/I-88

  3. Houston: I-45 at I-69/US 59

  4. Atlanta: I-285 at I-85 (North)

  5. Atlanta: I-20 at I-285 (West)

  6. Chicago: I-290 at I-90/I-94

  7. Los Angeles: SR 60 at SR 57

  8. Los Angeles: I-710 at I-105
