Sacramento-Area Commuters Lose 59 Hours Every Year In Traffic – And It’s Getting Worse

If it seems like it takes longer to get around Sacramento than it used to, it’s not just your imagination.

The latest urban mobility report from the Texas A&M Transportation Institute showed Sacramento-area residents had the 22nd-worst commute delays in the country, losing 59 hours in 2017 stuck in traffic.

Since 1982, the amount of time each Sacramento resident spends stuck in traffic has skyrocketed. At that time, the average delay per commuter was a mere 16 hours. But since then the number has more than tripled. If that trend continues, the average commuter could see annual delays close to 70 hours by 2030.
