FAIRFIELD COUNTY, Conn. – Traffic data collector Inrix confirmed what Fairfield County residents already know: the Bridgeport area has some of the worst traffic in the country.

Bridgeport ranked fifth on Inrix’s list of “The 10 Worst Traffic Cities in the U.S.” this week, The Weather Channel reports. The traffic monitoring company based its list on the average time spent commuting per year for residents in the 100 largest metropolitan areas in the country.

Drivers in the Bridgeport area spent an average of 42 hours sitting in traffic in 2011, the survey said. The worst time to be on highways near Bridgeport was Friday evening between 5:30-5:45 p.m. Honolulu ranked No. 1 with an average time of 58 hours wasted in traffic.

For every dollar Bridgeport citizens pay in State taxes, they get nearly $4.00 back from Hartford...Greenwich gets back a penny on the dollar so don't you complain now!

blame Hartford
they suck up money from fairfield county to build numerous superhighways for hartford county while we sit and burn taxable gas

a main corridor, I95 should be 4-5 lanes wide from NYS to New Haven

bridgeport couldn't get a break if they paid for it!!!....just another reason (of the many already), why people won't visit there...
