Seattle's 10 busiest streets

Traffic in Seattle is awful, but there are spots that are always more troublesome than others.

According to the Seattle Department of Transportation, these 10 roads are Seattle's busiest on the weekdays.

1. West Seattle Bridge

Here it is: the most traveled road in Seattle is the West Seattle Bridge. As many as 94,440 drivers cross the bridge on an average weekday. That means if a collision or stall gets in the way, traffic comes to a screeching halt.

In this photo from a memorable snow storm, traffic on the West Seattle Bridge is gridlocked coming out of downtown Seattle on Monday, Nov. 22, 2010. Drivers were stuck for hours throughout the Puget Sound region, as western Washington was hit by its first significant snowfall of the season.
