Pennsylvania makes list for worst bottlenecks in the country

Six bottlenecks in Pennsylvania—four in our area—made the American Transportation Research Institute's annual list for the worst in the country. 

FOX 29's Shawnette Wilson spoke with a man who says the study didn't reveal anything he didn't already know. 

"It's not hard to believe. You know why it's not hard? Because of the number of people buying automobiles, the number of automobiles have increased on the road," he said.

The six bottlenecks in Pennsylvania include the following:

No. 45: Philadelphia: I-76 at I-676

No. 52: Philadelphia: I-76 at US 1

No. 65: Philadelphia: I-476 at I-95

No. 78: Pittsburgh: I-70 at I-79 (East)

No. 82: Philadelphia, PA: I-76 at I-476

No. 98: Harrisburg, PA: SR 581 at I-83


Pennsylvania ranked 2nd most dangerous state for winter driving

"People get nervous. They don't know how to merge. I'm one of them," laughed Flo Stabler. She says it isn’t the road. It’s drivers.

"It's crazy. People don't know how to drive. They’re nuts. They’re nuts out there. Just be patient,” she said.
