Boston, Massachusetts, and the larger Greater Boston region, is notorious for traffic congestion due to the region's high population density, outmoded highway system (highway), and the high concentration of corporations with large offices located along major expressways and urban loops (including Route 128 (Massachusetts Route 128), MassPike (Massachusetts Turnpike), I-93 (Interstate 93), I-495 (Interstate 495 (Massachusetts))). Despite the region's compact nature, inbound traffic becomes very heavy on all expressways as early as 5:45AM on a typical weekday morning, making an inbound drive from the suburbs as long as 75 minutes. On the other hand, recent improvements brought about as part of the infamous Big Dig project have improved expressway traffic within Boston's city limits.
