Columbus Leads State In Traffic According To Study

Feb 6, 2013

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, and it puts Columbus 25th among 101 urban areas. The study found that a typical 20-minute trip takes about 23.5 minutes during morning and evening rush hours.
