California freeways are busiest. Are we surprised? (San Gabriel Valley Tribune)
California freeways logged nearly 85 billion miles in 2011, enough to complete 900 trips from the Earth to the Sun, according to a report from the U.S. Department of Transportation released Monday. And the single busiest Interstate in the nation was the 5 Freeway, with the I-10 and the I-110 placing second and third most traveled in the nation. Don’t think the 405 was overlooked. It was crowned busiest interstate in any city in America.

Who crowned the 405 busiest in any city if US DEPT. OF TRANSPORTATION crowned the 5 busiest in the nation?
Thanks for your question. The 405 designation was part of the same report. The LA segment of the I-405 serves an estimated 379,000 vehicles per day, making it the busiest interstate in any American city, according to Federal Highway Admin. numbers.
