ARLINGTON, Va. — Fourteen locations in Texas made the American Transportation Research Institute’s (ATRI) annual list highlighting the most congested bottlenecks for trucks in America. That’s the most bottlenecks of any state.
Ten of the locations were in the Houston metropolitan area.

“Texas is used to being ranked No. 1, but this is one list we are not proud to be on top of,” Texas Trucking Association President and CEO John D. Esparza said. “Bottlenecks around the state continue to waste time and money, further damaging the already fragile supply chain. With the newly available federal resources for infrastructure projects, there is no excuse – these bottlenecks must be addressed.  A reliable and stable transportation network is essential to our economy – just like the trucking industry.”
The 2022 Top Truck Bottleneck List measures the level of truck-involved congestion at over 300 locations on the national highway system.

The analysis, based on truck GPS data from over 1 million freight trucks 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.
