Texas’ Most Congested Roadways

Complete Statewide List

The 2019 ranking of Texas’ most congested roadways illustrates a familiar theme — growth-induced traffic gridlock is getting worse every year. This analysis provides a variety of congestion measures for more than 1,800 roadways across Texas. Houston’s West Loop repeats its 2018 rank as the most gridlocked corridor in the state. Interstate 35 in central Austin follows in second, with the Southwest and Eastex Freeways in Houston and Dallas’ Woodall Rodgers Freeway rounding out the top five.
