LV Traffic Congestion Up 35%
According to the INRIX National Traffic Scorecard, the Lehigh Valley has experienced a 35% rise in congestion over the past year. This follows two successive years of decreases.
Worst place and time to be on the road? Fridays westbound on Rte 22 near Rte 378, between 5 and 6PM.
Overall, the LV ranks #57 nationwide. Other rankings in the Keystone State are as follows: Philly - #10; Pittsburgh - #24; and Harrisburg - #60.
Mea Culpa: Thanks to my readers, who note I had Rte 222 instead of Rte 22.
