Record Number Of Texans Expected To Travel For 4th Of July

 

An estimated 3.4 million Texans will travel 50 miles or more away from home during the Fourth of July holiday, nearly 6 percent more than a year ago. Independence Day this year falls on a Wednesday.

The company attributes the record-high numbers this year to a strong economy and the fact that the holiday falls on a Wednesday, making it easier for people to schedule a weekend trip.

The majority of travelers will hit the roads, with 2.9 million Texans expected to drive to their destination, AAA said.

That will mean increased traffic and congestion through the holiday week, which lasts from July 3 to 8.
