  • Expect More Holiday Traffic This Year AAA projects 50.9 million Americans will journey 50 miles or more away from home this Thanksgiving, a 3.3 percent increase over last year. The 2017 holiday weekend will see the highest Thanksgiving travel volume since 2005 with 1.6 million more people taking to the nation’s roads, skies, rails and waterways compared with last year. AAA and INRIX, a global transportation analytics company, predict travel times in the most congested cities in the U.S. during the holiday week could be as much as three times longer than the optimal trip.

  • Today Is Snowplow Driver Appreciation Day Governor Scott Walker has proclaimed Monday, November 20 as Snowplow Driver Appreciation Day in Wisconsin.   Approximately 2,000 municipal and county snowplow drivers provide a vital public service that supports public safety and mobility.  The Wisconsin Department of Transportation has a century-old and highly-valued partnership with county highway departments who do an outstanding job keeping state roadways clear of snow and ice.  Motorists can do their part by slowing down, give plows plenty of room to operate, and stay off roads if possible during severe winter storms so plow operators can do their important work.
