How bad is traffic on Interstate 80?
Where is the worst traffic on Interstate 80? I’m comparing road trip routes and I-80 is a lot faster, but I’m worried that the traffic will make it a bad choice for me.
Answer provided by
The traffic on Interstate 80 is typically at its worst near major cities—and I-80 runs pretty close to a lot of big cities in the U.S. Some areas with lots of traffic to watch out for include:
- San Fransisco, California
- Reno, Nevada
- Salt Lake City, Utah
- Chicago, Illinois
- Toledo, Ohio
- New York City, New York
New York is notorious for being one of the worst cities for traffic in the United States, so you’ll need to drive carefully if you’re planning to use Interstate 80 in that area! That said, there’s also a large section of I-80 through the western United States that has very little traffic—so if you’re driving there, you’ll probably find it smooth sailing.
