AAA Predicts Heavy Traffic On Independence Day Weekend In Wisconsin

Wednesday, July 3rd, 2013 at 4:13 pm

It’s going to be a busy weekend on Wisconsin roads. WQOW reports that AAA says nearly 900,000 Wisconsin residents plan to travel over the holiday. That’s down more than 1 percent compared to last year.

The state patrol says traffic over the Fourth of July holiday will be at its worst between noon and 8 p.m. Wednesday. It’s also expected to be bad during those same hours on Thursday and again on Sunday.

The DOT says most road construction will be halted at noon Wednesday, but drivers will still hit narrow lanes and lane shifts that will cause backups. Be mindful of fellow travelers, and as always, don’t drink and drive.
