AAA Predicts New Independence Day Holiday Travel Record
A record-breaking 46.9 million Americans will travel 50 miles or more away from home this Independence Day holiday, a 5 percent increase from last year and the most travelers for the holiday since
AAA began tracking 18 years ago.
Over 1 million Wisconsinites will travel during the holiday weekend, 6 percent more than last year.
Drivers are likely to experience the worst congestion over the holiday week on Tuesday, July 3 in the late afternoon – as commuters leave work early and mix with holiday travelers.
