Labor Day is near, but if you’re planning a road trip for the long holiday weekend, you may be stuck in heavier traffic than usual. 
Many people will be hitting the roads for the final summer holiday – a survey found the 80% of travelers plan on driving to their destinations this weekend. Transportation analytics company INRIX says travelers can expect delays as early as Wednesday, but traffic shouldn’t be as bad as on other holiday weekends. 
“There’s not going to be as much travel as Fourth of July or Memorial Day and not as much traffic congestion on the roads during that time too,” Bob Pishue, transportation analyst for INRIX, told USA TODAY.
If you’re planning for a road trip this holiday weekend, here is what to know:

Cruises: When are cruise lines still requiring COVID testing? Here’s what passengers should know.
All times are local:
Wednesday: Before 12:00 p.m. or after 7:00 p.m.
Thursday: Before 12:00 p.m. or after 7:00 p.m.
Friday: Before 1:00 p.m. or after 7:00 p.m.
Saturday: Before 1:00 p.m. or after 5:00 p.m.
Sunday and Monday are expected to have normal to minimal congestion. 
“Thursday, like three-to-four o’clock (p.m.) is probably the worst time to leave,” Pishue said. “That’s when you get commuters and people running errands, mixing with vacationers and schools getting out if they’re in session.”
All times are local:
Wednesday: 1:00-8:00 p.m.
Thursday: 1:00-8:00 p.m.
Friday: 11:00 a.m.-8:00 p.m.
Saturday: 12:00-5:00 p.m.
Pishue added what could help ease the pain on the road is taking state highways as opposed to an interstate highway. 
“It might take you a little bit longer, but it’ll be much less stressful and maybe more scenic depending on where you are,” he said.
