Hitting the road for 4th of July weekend? AAA shares worst times for holiday travel in New England – Boston 25 News



BOSTON — Be prepared to sit in significant traffic if you plan to hit the road for the Fourth of July weekend, unless you plan ahead, according to the American Automobile Association.

Beginning Thursday, 89 percent of the region’s 2.7 million holiday travelers are expected to pack local interstates, AAA Northeast estimates. Another 179,000 New Englanders plan to fly.

The afternoons of Thursday and Friday are expected to be peak traffic times and days for drivers in major metro areas across the region.

For airline travelers, July 1 will be the busiest air travel day with July 4 being the lightest.

Overall, about 48 million Americans are expected drive, fly or cruise 50 miles or more this year — a nearly 4 percent increase over last year.

As of Wednesday, the national average for a gallon of self-serve regular gasoline was $4.87.
