ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A roadway analysis shows five bridge crossing are among the most congested Albuquerque roads.

The Albuquerque Journal reports (https://bit.ly/2qgAXOA ) the latest Corridor Rankings from the Mid-Region Metropolitan Planning Organization put five crossing from U.S. 550 in Sandoval County to Bridge Boulevard in Albuquerque on top. The rankings are based on data from 2014.

Transportation Planner Willie Simon says the analysis shows that there is a lot of demand to cross the Rio Grande eastbound in the mornings and westbound in the evenings.

Senior Planner Nathan Masek does not think more river crossings with ease the traffic. Simons says improved traffic signal timing, better mass transportation options and road conditions phone apps may relieve some of the congestion.
