Sitting in traffic is not unusual for commuters in the Harrisburg, York and Lancaster areas. The stop-and-go of the rush hour wears on cars, nerves and wallets.
TRIP, a Washington, D.C., based national transportation organization, has pinpointed 14 corridors costing area commuters a total of $472 million each year or about $2,000 annually per driver depending on which route they take.
The report released Thursday points to these trouble zones for commuters:
- Rohrerstown Road from Wabank Road to State Street in Lancaster. On this corridor, the average rush hour driver spends 108 hours, 46 additional gallons of gas, and $1,995 annually or $38 weekly.
