Wisconsin AAA expects more travelers for Labor Day weekend

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Once again, you can expect to see more traffic on Wisconsin roads during the Labor Day weekend.

The AAA predicts that 731,000 Badger State residents will travel at least 50 miles one-way during the holiday. That's 1.4 percent more than a year ago. And it's slightly higher than the national increase of 1.3 percent.

AAA says almost 35 million Americans will hit the road this Labor Day, the highest since before the Great Recession began in earnest in late 2008.

Almost 90 percent of Wisconsin travelers will head out by car.

The travel period is defined as Thursday through Monday, the day before most Wisconsin schools open for the fall.
