The American Transportation Research Institute has released its annual list highlighting the most congested bottlenecks for trucks in America.

The 2024 Top Truck Bottleneck List measures the level of truck-involved congestion at over 325 locations on the national highway system.

For the sixth 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 rest of the Top 10 includes:

  • Chicago: I-294 at I-290/I-88
  • Chicago: I-55
  • Houston: I-45 at I-69/US 59
  • Atlanta: I-285 at I-85 (North)
  • Atlanta: I-20 at I-285 (West)
  • Los Angeles: SR 60 at SR 57
  • Houston: I-10 at I-45
  • Atlanta: I-285 at SR 400
  • Nashville: I-24/I-40 at I-440 (East)

“The freight bottlenecks identified in this report provide an actionable blueprint for state and federal transportation officials on where to invest infrastructure funding most cost-effectively,” said ATA President and CEO Chris Spear.

“Increasing freight efficiency should be a top priority for the U.S. DOT, and alleviating these bottlenecks would improve highway safety, protect the environment and support interstate commerce.”
