AAA predicts highest Thanksgiving travel volume in Ohio since 2005

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohioans traveling during Thanksgiving won’t be lonely on the roads.

The auto club AAA is predicting the highest Thanksgiving travel volume in Ohio since 2005.

AAA says more than two million Ohioans will be hitting the road on trips between Wednesday and the following Sunday.

“I think roadways are going to be busy because the majority– nearly 90 percent of those traveling are going to be going by automobile,” said Cindy Antrican with AAA.

More than 48 million are predicted to travel nationwide.
