Chicagoland drivers have some of the worst commutes in the country

  • Chicagoans have a nationally ranked longer commute and some of the worst individual road delays.
  • On the top 20 road segments for congestion, Los Angeles took the top three spots, but three spots on the Dan Ryan and Kennedy Expressways ranked as well.
  • Travel delays due to traffic congestion caused drivers to waste more than 3 billion gallons of fuel and kept travelers stuck in their cars for nearly 7 billion extra hours – 42 hours per rush-hour commuter.

If you live in the Chicago area and commute to work, you’re not imagining that you have a longer drive. Chicagoans have a nationally ranked longer commute, in fact. And, some of the worst individual road delays in the country.
