Analysis: Nashville drivers have hardest commutes in the country
It's not just you. Nashville's work commutes are especially painful, according to a new analysis by Forbes.
- Nashville came in No. 1 in its ranking of cities with the hardest commutes. We even beat out Los Angeles and New York.
By the numbers: Forbes reported that commuters in Nashville lost 41 hours in traffic last year.
Zoom in: The ranking is based on average drive time, access to public transit and walkability, among other factors.
- Forbes cited Nashville's explosive growth as one contribution to the gridlock — which won't surprise longtime residents who have seen their commutes get worse in recent years.
Be smart: If you're driving through town this weekend, remember not to add to your anguish — part of Interstate 65 South will be closed in the downtown loop.
- Expect more closures next week for the CMA Awards.
