Drivers start the holiday travel season with wet weather

Posted: Updated:

The Virginia Department of Transportation is lifting lane closures during the Thanksgiving holiday period.

VDOT will end the closures on most interstates and other roads starting from noon Wednesday through noon Monday. The idea is to keep the highways obstruction free during the busy holiday travel period.

VDOT also advises that based on past traffic data, the heaviest periods of congestion on most roads occur after noon on Wednesday and after noon on both weekend days.

Triple A predicts a slight drop in holiday traffic this Thanksgiving.
