Expect Modest Traffic Memorial Day Weekend

May 23, 2020

Memorial Day weekend marks the unofficial start of the summer tourism season, but highways are going to be lightly traveled for the holiday weekend this year.

According to the Maine Turnpike Authority, traffic is down by over half. The last time numbers were this low was back in 2000.

That said, the turnpike will probably be the busiest since stay-at-home orders were imposed back in March.
