Here it is, boys and girls, the first big getaway weekend of the summer. And, wouldn't you know it, the Wilson Bridge is open this morning to let a ship pass through, which means backups on both shores. Traffic on parts of I-95 south in Virginia are also heavy. It's worth noting that I-95 north looks just fine, which means that everyone's heading out of town and nobody's coming into work.
Overall, though, the roads seem eerily quiet so far, an indication either that this afternoon and evening is going to be awful or that everyone has already left town. Or maybe gas prices are too high for people to travel at all.
Whatever it is, we'll monitor traffic and update y'all all day here at Get There. So send in your hopes and fears for the day and we'll see what we can do to get you out of town. And, of course, send us all your reports from the road so we can let everyone know what you're seeing.
Also, check out my story today on getting away.
