CAA has identified the top most congested traffic bottlenecks in Canada, and 10 of them were found in Toronto. According to the study, the 10 bottlenecks cost drivers a whopping 11.5 million hours of delays per year; 3 million of those hours being due to the stretch between Hwy. 427 and Yonge Street.

Here are the 10 most congested areas in Toronto, in order of national rank:


1: Hwy. 401 between Hwy. 427 and Yonge St


2: DVP/Hwy. 404 between Don Mills Rd and Finch Ave


4: Gardiner Expressway between South Kingsway and Bay St


6: Hwy. 401 between Bayview Ave and Don Mills Rd


7: Hwy. 409 between Hwy. 401 and Kipling Ave


11: Hwy. 401 between DVP and Victoria Park Ave

13: Hwy. 401 between Mavis Rd and McLaughlin Rd
