MnDOT: Traffic Congestion Held Steady Last Year

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Do you feel like you’re spending more time stuck in traffic?

A new study by the Minnesota Department of Transportation says traffic congestion actually held steady this past year, increasing just 0.3 percent.

The study shows roads tend to be more congested during the morning rush — between 5 a.m. and 10 a.m. — than during the evening commute — from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Congestion is defined as freeway traffic flowing at speeds less than 45 miles per hour.
