155 minutes of misery on the nation’s most congested asthmaway

From Crain’s New York:

New York’s gridlock issues are getting worse, and a new study details just how widespread the congestion problem is. According to transportation analytics company INRIX, more traffic bottleneck points are scattered throughout the city and its surrounding suburbs than in any other metro area in the country.

The kicker:

But New York still has some of the country’s worst locations for gridlock, including stretches across four local highways that rank among the country’s 25 most miserable. That includes two Cross Bronx Expressway spots whose jams force vehicles to spend an average of 155 minutes traversing just 3.5 miles.

(Emphasis mine.)

The Cross Bronx Parking Lot Asthmaway Expressway strikes again! (You know what, I’m just gonna refer to it as an asthmaway from here on out!)
