Study: Chicago communte amongst worst in nation

Illinois has the fourth-worst highway congestion in the nation.

According to a report by the Reason Foundation, more than half of the state’s highways are congested during rush hour.

But there is some good news; the report finds, Illinois spends more than most other states on its roads; so it has very few interstate highways in poor condition.

Of course, all that road construction and maintenance contributes to the delays.

A study on how to relieve the congestion will come out next year.

In case you’re interested, Florida has the worst congestion — with almost two-thirds of its highways jammed during rush hour.
