To help make Thanksgiving travel easier and safer for Virginians on the road to friends and family, the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) will suspend many highway work zones and lift most lane closures on interstates and other major roads in Virginia from noon on Wednesday, November 24, until noon on Monday, November 29.
While lane closures will be lifted in most locations, motorists may encounter semi-permanent work zones that remain in place during this time.
Based on historical data, there will be peak congestion periods anticipated on Virginia interstates during the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday period.
Based on the traffic data, the busiest travel day is on Tuesday with heavy congestion between noon and 8:00 p.m. and moderate congestion throughout the day. Heavy congestion is also expected on Wednesday and Sunday between 10:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. with moderate congestion during the shoulder hours. Saturday shows moderate congestion between 10:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m.
