Travel increase during solar eclipse

DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) –  On August 21 all of North America will be seeing a total solar eclipse.

Ohioans will see a partial solar eclipse with 80 to 90 percent of the sun obscured and Micki Dudads, Triple A Managing Director of Leisure and Travel Sales, says it will be a busy travel weekend leading up to the eclipse.

“If you’re going to be driving down now is a good time to get your car ready for the journey,” Dudads said. “This is gonna be a journey where you need to exercise patience.”

Some experts say best places to see the entire path of the solar eclipse are Hopkinsville, Kentucky and Nashville, Tennessee. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
