Heavy Thanksgiving Travel Expected in Maryland

November 18th, 2012 by WCBC Radio

Marylanders will begin heading for the exits this weekend, kicking off the traditional trek to somewhere else to gorge on food and fellowship. While there will be a lot of travelers on the rails and in the skies, a AAA Mid-Atlantic survey to be released Friday indicates that most Maryland residents with travel plans — 91 percent — will be going by car.
About 883,000 travelers — or roughly one in six residents — are going somewhere for the holiday, according to the survey. That's still below pre-recession levels but a slight increase over last year, as travel has rebounded incrementally since 2008. This year most are driving, another 7 percent are flying and 2 percent will be relying on train, bus or ship.
