According to MSN, Spring Hill residents have the worst commute in Tennessee. With a strong economy and cheap gas U.S roads are more traveled than ever causing the worst traffic we have seen in a long time. The Texas Transportation Institute estimates our love for driving costs us $160 billion a year including productivity and gas burned sitting in traffic.
The data is a five-year estimate taken from 2010-2014 and doesn’t include cities with less than 15,000 in population. The data is a tad old and most Spring Hill residents would agree that the drive on I-65 has gotten better in the last couple months due to new lanes opening up in the Peytonsville section of the drive.
Last year Williamson Source conducted a traffic survey and the data also shows that I-65 is the primary artery for North-South travel, with the various exits providing the primary means for East-West travel. Over 91% believe traffic is getting worse, nearly 84% believe roads are generally inadequate, and 94% believe roads are not ready for future growth.
Here are the top 5 worst commutes in the United States.
