Memorial Day getaway traffic

The arrival of Memorial Day Weekend means the arrival of traffic, traffic and more traffic. People coming and going, hitting the roads and rails and generally fleeing in whatever direction they please. And more people are hitting the road than last year, to the tune of 800,000 people getting out of town. And it's supposed to rain, just to make things interesting.

Traffic will be packed on the Chesapeake Bay Bridge, the usual path to the beaches. The U.S. Naval Academy graduation will let out and surely add to the congestion. There's the NCAA lacrosse championship games in Baltimore this weekend.

And there's the usual choke points on I-95 South (to the south of the Springfield Interchange) and I-95 North (before and after Baltimore, though the before will be complicated due to lacrosse).

Are you hearing about bad traffic? Sitting in a parking lot that used to be a major roadway? Let us know in the comments below.

The hypertext link you have in the article is to the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel. May want to correct :)
