Texas’ Most Congested Roadways

Complete Statewide List

The 2020 ranking of Texas’ most congested roadways provides a picture of Texas growth and gridlock before the COVID-19 pandemic. TTI’s analysis provides a variety of congestion measures for more than 1,800 roadway sections across Texas. IH-35 through downtown Austin displaces Houston’s West Loop (IH-610) as the most gridlocked corridor in the state. Houston’s Southwest Freeway (IH-69), Dallas’ Woodall Rodgers Freeway (SS-366), and the Eastex Freeway (IH-69) in Houston round out the top five.
