The Arkansas Department of Transportation (ArDOT) reminds drivers to “know before you go” and visit IDriveArkansas.com before traveling during the Thanksgiving Holiday.
Extensive highway improvements continue through the state. Travelers will likely face work zones and possible delays due to increased traffic volume.
Overall travel volume for the holiday is expected to rise 2.9% over last year, according to the American Automobile Association (AAA). The AAA predicts that more than 49 million Americans will travel by automobile between Wednesday, November 27 and Sunday, December 1.
To help motorists find ways around accidents and work zone backups on Interstates, ArDOT has an Alternate Routes feature on IDriveArkansas.com. It displays linkages between the Interstate corridors and secondary routes that motorists may consider when travel is delayed.
Drivers can also keep up with highway delays by following ArDOT on Twitter @myARDOT.
