Truckers Advised to Avoid These TOP 10 Worst Corridors This Thanksgiving
Orlando, FL — AAA is forecasting that more than 53 million Americans will travel this Thanksgiving with 90% of those expected to hit the road.
According to AAA, the number of Americans who will travel this year is expected to rise 13% from 2020 putting travel volumes within 5% of pre-pandemic levels in 2019.
AAA, in collaboration INRIX, is expecting 48.3 million Americans to hit U.S. roadways and predicts drivers will experience the worst congestion heading into the holiday weekend as commuters leave work early and mix with holiday travelers.
Major metro areas across the country could see more than double the delays versus typical drive times, with drivers in Atlanta, Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles and New York City likely to experience more than three times the delays.
“Thanksgiving is one of the busiest holidays for road trips and this year will be no different even during the pandemic,” says Bob Pishue, Transportation Analyst, INRIX. “Drivers around major metros must be prepared for significant delays, especially Wednesday afternoon. Knowing when and where congestion will build can help drivers avoid the stress of sitting in traffic.”
