Andrew Clegg’s commute from his Arizona City home to his former job in Maricopa County took 45 to 90 minutes on a good day — hours if there was a wreck on Interstate 10.
The Census Bureau this week confirmed what Mr. Clegg knew: It wasn’t the distance that made the trip so long, it was the tens of thousands of others heading in the same direction at the same time.
A bureau report on commuting patterns last week said that more than half of Pinal County residents leave the county for work, with most of them heading to Maricopa County. The report estimates that about 57,000 workers make the trek every day.
