Figure 3-15. Peak-Period Congestion on High-Volume Truck Portions of the National Highway System: 2007
Congested highways carrying a large number of trucks substantially impede interstate commerce, and trucks on those segments contribute significantly to congestion. Recurring congestion slows traffic on 4,700 miles and creates stop-and-go conditions on 3,700 miles of the NHS that carry more than 8,500 trucks per day.
