TTI Associate Agency Director Bill Eisele was recently featured in a CNBC news video on Feb. 6 about traffic and congestion.
According to Eisele, “Just like congestion doesn’t have a single cause, there isn’t a single solution. And for the most part, we recommend more of everything in growing regions, especially where there’s high population and job growth. In these cases, we must look at capacity improvements.”
Eisele also addresses the return of the morning commute in 2022 and explains how new travel behaviors have led to increased congestion steadily throughout all hours of the day. “The trick now is people are leaving perhaps later in the day. We’re seeing that there’s traffic throughout all hours of the day now. There are peaks, but traffic isn’t necessarily always quite as ‘peaky.’”
