Well it's not really unknown, but Boston's beloved Southeast Expressway has been ranked the seventh most polluting Interstate highway in the U.S.

A survey done by the folk at GPS provider TomTom shows seven of the ten dirtiest Interstates are in California. The others, besides the Expressway, are I-95 South in Virginia (understandable as an extension of the Beltway (hey, who puts a drawbridge on an Interstate (yep, it's there!))) and I-95 in Connecticut (tell me about it!).

And why didn't the mess in the Atlanta area and the Long Island Expressway make the list?
