Michigan drivers in urban areas spend over 40 percent more time in congested traffic than drivers in the average “Top Ten” state.

What It Is: Hours of delay per resident in urbanized areas.

Why It Matters: High amounts of delay waste productive time and add additional costs to employment, preventing some workers from entering the workforce.

Note: Due to data limitations, 2016 data is not yet available.
