Loop 820 Found To Be “Highway From Hell”

The Daily Beast did a bunch of fancy calculations to find out which are the lousiest stretches of highway in the country. Good news! We’ve got a stretch of road that landed at No. 5 on the list! Here’s the most interesting part of the report, though: “Somewhat surprisingly, the INRIX report shows a 30 percent drop in traffic across the country over the past year. The reasons, according to INRIX’s Jim Bak, include rising fuel prices, relatively few jobs created in urban areas, and the completion of stimulus projects resulting in less road construction.”
