Thanksgiving Traveling

With the holidays approaching, VDOT has announced that all statewide lane closures will be suspended noon Wednesday, Nov. 23 until noon Monday Nov. 28. This is hoping to maximize all available lanes for the expected holiday traffic.

In addition, to help with planning their trips, VDOT has also provided detailed maps showing peak travel times based on previous years. They recommend using this information to help avoid heavy traffic.

For real time traffic conditions, visit or call 511 from any Virginia phone.

I hope this information will allow you to plan for more time with family and friends and less time stuck in traffic. Happy Thanksgiving!
