JULY 4TH HOLIDAY TRAVEL EXPECTED TO BEGIN TODAY

COLUMBUS (June 29, 2007) - If you're planning on getting a jump on holiday travel this weekend, you're not alone. A historical analysis of traffic volumes by the Ohio Department of Transportation's (ODOT) traffic experts shows that when July 4th falls on a Wednesday, the biggest increase in traffic comes the weekend before. That means starting today, urban interstates could see a 4 to 6 percent rise in traffic volumes and rural highways could see a 7 to 10 percent increase in traffic.

As always, ODOT is taking extra steps to make travel this July 4th week as safe and efficient as possible. To keep traffic moving through the state's construction zones during peak travel times, ODOT works to open additional lanes of traffic and requires contractors to maintain at least two lanes of traffic in each direction where possible on the interstates. But some closures are unavoidable and motorists should always use caution when traveling through construction zones, even when it appears there is no work occurring. In addition, with extra traffic on the highways, motorists could experience congestion in unexpected areas, especially on rural highways.

Knowing where closures and construction zones are ahead of time can reduce frustration and delays for travelers. Motorists can get up-to-date construction, road condition and travel information at any time at www.buckeyetraffic.org.
