The western half of the Washington DC Beltway and I-270 in Maryland has very little truck traffic, only trucks that deliver to the area. North south through traffic in the DC area follows the eastern half of the Beltway and that is the part that carries I-95 south and north. MOst of I-495 in Maryland and NOVA has surprisingly few semis.

There is a lot of truck traffic in Louisiana on I-12 and I-10. I-12 is actually busier with truck traffic through Baton Rouge since that is the shortcut for cross-country traffic that avoids going through New Orleans.

I've never been to Maine or Vermont but I would assume those states too since they aren't on the way to anywhere so not much through traffic, and they also don't have industries like oil/gas production, fracking, coal mining, pipelines etc that would involve a lot of truck traffic like I've seen in West Virginia and Louisiana. They also don't have major ports or airports/air freight hubs that would have a lot of truck traffic. In West Virginia you would see heavy trucks going down narrow roads because of the coal mines and natural gas drill pads located in rural areas but requiring a lot of transport.

There are logging trucks going down US 1 in northeast Maine every 15 minutes going to the pulp mill in Baileyville, from there it goes to Estes Head in Eastport where wood pulp is shipped all over Europe and China.

Other than Hawaii and Alaska....

Looking at the truck transportation volume map posted earlier,
looks like North Dakota would next as having fewest big rigs.
