Live Q&A, Friday at Noon: Holiday Weekend Travel

AAA has projected that the number of Americans traveling on vacation this Labor Day weekend will be heavily impacted by when the holiday falls on the calendar. Approximately 39.1 million travelers are expected to take a trip of 50 miles or more away from home, a decrease of 13.3 percent from 2008. Labor Day fell on Sept. 1 last year allowing for a long weekend trip before a new school year started in many regions of the country. This year it's later, Sept. 8.

Lon Anderson, director of Public and Government Affairs at AAA Mid-Atlantic, will be online Friday, Sept. 4, at Noon ET to discuss travel conditions along the roadways, gas prices, travel tips and accommodations and Metro's plans to shutter Reagan National Airport Station this weekend, forcing travelers to use shuttle buses.

Join the discussion.
