It’s officially Labor Day weekend and the celebration of the end of summer. While some might be staying home and relaxing, others are hitting the road for one last summer trip.

According to AAA, travel for the weekend will see an 4% increase from 2012 with many travelers (46%) hitting the road on Friday.

AAA expects upwards of 34.1 million Americans taking to roadways for travel this weekend. Reasons for this include improved gas prices and travelers will be spending more while traveling this year as compared to recent years according to experts.

Don’t just think the roadways will see an increase, air travel is also expected to see a slight upswing over the weekend with an estimated 2.6 million people flying.

No matter how you travel this weekend, make sure to leave a little early and expect delays. Traffic on the Northway headed to Lake George, Saratoga Springs, etc will have increased volume starting Friday afternoon/evening and go throughout the weekend. Especially plan for extra time on your return as the 24 Tolls will more then likely be backed up come Monday.
