While we are experiencing a good bit of pain with the widening projects of Bruce B. Downs in New Tampa & Wesley Chapel and the widening of SR 54 in Wesley Chapel, the time in our cars commuting should be markedly improved when these projects are complete.
A recently released study by TheStreet and Bundle however ranks Tampa in the bottom 20 of 90 cities for commuting. The rankings were based on average commute time, number of commuters during peak hours, total miles traveled daily, annual hours of delay per commuter during peak hours, and spending on gas an auto expenses. The top 5 worst cities for commutes according to the study? Dallas, San Jose, Houston, Miami, & Phoenix. Link
