Inland traffic congestion worsens
INLAND EMPIRE--The Riverside area is the 16th most-congested in the nation, according to a traffic study just issued. Los Angeles is number-one.
The Inland area’s two worst troublespots are within five-miles of each other on Route 60. One is westbound at the Moreno Valley Interchange and the other eastbound at Orange Street.
The worst travel day is Friday between 4-and-5pm.
Michelle Large at INRIX, a traffic information provider, says they used GPS technology to develop their study.
“Data came from over 800,000 vehicles from taxicabs to long-haul trucks, delivery vans and others with GPS transponders within them.”
INRIX says traffic bottlenecks are having a major impact on consumers, businesses and the nation’s economy.
San Francisco was the only other California city ranking in the top ten for worst congestion.
