Big travel weekend expected for Thanksgiving holiday

If you’re planning to travel during the Thanksgiving weekend, you should expect to have plenty of company on the roads and in the skies.

According to AAA, at least 55 million people are expected to travel 50 miles or more for the Thanksgiving holiday. According to the organization, that projection is 1.6 million higher than last year, making it the second highest Thanksgiving travel volume since the group began tracking it in 2000.

AAA is predicting approximately 49.3 million will travel by car, 4.45 million will fly, and 1.49 million will travel by bus, train, or boat. If you’re driving, you may want to leave before or after Wednesday, the group says travel times on that day could take up to four times as long.
