Illinois is #4 for highway congestion
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.
