Report: BQE 3rd-most congested roadway in metro area

In a report released by the National Traffic Scorecard, the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway is named as the third-most congested roadway in the New York metro area.

The report also states that the New York metro area is the second-most congested region in the country behind Los Angeles, but New York is expected to claim the dubious title this year.

According to the report, the worst time to take the BQE is 5:15 p.m. ? 5:30 p.m. on Friday evenings. The best time during rush hours is Monday evenings or Friday mornings.
