Study: NY's worst truck bottleneck is in Brooklyn
The state's worst truck bottleneck can be found in Brooklyn, a new study says.
According to the American Transportation Research Institute, the point where I-278 meets the Belt Parkway sees more truck congestion than anywhere else in New York. Specifically, it's the spot where the interstate splits into two roads -- one leading to the Belt Parkway and the other toward the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway.
The congestion slows down truck traffic to 31 mph during peak morning hours.
The study's statistics and rankings strictly apply to freight trucks.
The No. 1 truck bottleneck in the nation is along I-285 in Atlanta, Georgia.
