Study: Columbus has Ohio's worst traffic



Published: Wed, February 6, 2013 @ 1:05 p.m.

COLUMBUS (AP) — A national study says Columbus has the worst traffic in Ohio.

The annual Urban Mobility Report by the Texas A&M Transportation Institute calculated that the typical Columbus-area rush-hour commuter spends 40 hours a year in backed-up traffic. That’s tops in the state.

The Columbus Dispatch reports the time in traffic is two hours above the national average. And it puts Columbus 25th among 101 U.S. urban areas.

The study found that a typical 20-minute trip takes about 23.5 minutes during morning and evening rush hours in the state capital.

The nation’s worst commute is in the Washington, D.C., area. The easiest is in Stockton, Calif.

At least Columbus has a rush hour, the only rush in Youngstown is the first of the month when the welfare checks come out.
