Busiest Intersections in the Boise Area

It used to be that the busiest intersection in Boise was at Cole Rd and Fairview Ave. Now it doesn't even make the top 10. Since it's still seems busy, even with Cole School closed and torn down, this says something, although I don't know what.

The following are the top 10 busiest intersections. The data is from 2008 and includes traffic from all directions at a peak (rush) hour.

10 - Curtis & Fairview 5246 cars
9 - Gary Ln / Glenwood / State 5458
8 - Eagle & I-84 WB Ramps 5467
7 - Eagle & Franklin 5552
6 - Cole & Overland 5574
5 - 13th & Front 5576
4 - Chinden & Glenwood 5602
3 - Chinden & Eagle 5680
2 - 9th & Front 5811

and the winner is
Number One - Eagle & Fairview 6702

Now you know which areas to avoid at rush hour, as if you didn't already.

So let me get this straight, if an intersection has a lot of traffic, it should be one to avoid. Does this mean all those folks who work in downtown Boise should avoid 13th and Front and the main access to I-184? Is that truly realistic? It might be better to provide a list of intersections with the highest delay, which may or may not coincide with the above.
