Atlanta is listed 7 times but Houston is on there 10 times. I would have Los Angeles would have been on the list more.

I lived in Atlanta near the I-285/I-85 junction aka Spaghetti Junction. Rush hour ran from 6:30am-10:00am and 3:00pm-8:00pm through this interchange. Atlanta forces commercial truck traffic to use I-285 instead of traveling straight through Atlanta on I-75/I-85/I-20. All this concentrated truck traffic makes the congestion worst than normal. When I left Atlanta 10 years ago they were in the planning stages to expand I-75 north to 21 lanes.

Surprised to see that Connecticut for such a small state has seven on the list. Number 24 on the list Hartford, CT: I-84 at I-91, I can see from my work window.

Only three listed for Michigan, and the only one of those I had to deal with regularly when I was commuting was #70: I-75 at I-696. Traffic in the area we live is usually pretty tame. The biggest non-weather or road construction issue we have to deal with is if we are driving by Ann Arbor on Saturdays in the autumn and there is a football game. That creates major backups - we live about 15 minutes east of Ann Arbor, and head past that city when I play golf or we visit some friends west of AA.

I'm not surprised to see Atlanta at number 1. I stay off the Interstates as much as possible That's why I live intown.
