If anyone has driven on the Cross Bronx Expressway, you probably know that it's best to try and avoid the road at all costs. It's usually littered with backed up traffic, unfortunate accidents, and angry New York drivers.
The westbound Cross Bronx Expressway was the most congested road in the entire country last year, especially bad in the evenings, according to a report released by INRIX, a transportation analytics firm. The reverse route, the eastbound side, is ranked as the third-most congested road in the country, mostly for the morning commute. The Big Apple is only ranked as No. 2 in the nation for the most hours spent in traffic congestion in urban areas last year, following Los Angeles in the No. 1 spot.
In 2016, New Yorkers spent 89 hours in traffic during peak hours, most of those hours being on the Cross Bronx Expressway. We know that sitting in traffic makes you want to pull your hair out, but at least we have good bagels and pizza to keep us company!
