Motorists who regularly lose their cool while traveling the I-76 between West Conshohocken and Spring Garden Street have just been vindicated, as that stretch of road has been ranked in the top ten for worst traffic nationwide, according to the Inrix traffic study, writes Matt Schmitz for cars.com.
According to the Inrix’s Most Congested U.S. Roads in 2016, the I-76 Southbound between Exit 332 and Exit 343 costs drivers a total of 58 hours in delays per year. This equates to nearly two and a half days of a commuter’s life spent stalled in traffic annually.
Unsurprisingly, New York turns out to be the city with the largest number of individual roads with bad traffic, taking four of the top ten spots. It also tops the list with its I-95 westbound, which costs motorists an average of 86 hours a year waiting in traffic.
However, this top ten ranking has helped put Philadelphia at No. 17 out of 240 cities nationwide that suffer from bad traffic. According to Inrix, drivers in the City of Brotherly Love spent around eight percent of their driving time stuck in congestion last year.
