Alert! Massachusetts Highways are Jammed with Summer Travelers

 

traffic

 

Driving down the Massachusetts Turnpike (I-90) at mid-day today, it was obvious that summer holiday traffic was already in full force.  The toll booths were slowed down, the on-ramps were busy, and the rest stop had a line-up for parking spaces. 

People have wasted no time in getting packed and started on their summer holidays.

What does this mean?  For anyone traveling into and out of Massachusetts for the next two months, be prepared for slow speeds and waiting in line.  The Mass Turnpike is a major travel artery, bringing visitors from New York, Connecticut, Vermont, Rhode Island, New Hampshire and Maine to and from other parts of the country.  Throw in the magnetic pull of Boston and Cape Cod, and all routes north, south, east, and west will be busy.

Plan ahead, get an early start, allow extra time for your travels, and watch your neighbors on the highway.

Have a great summer, wherever the road takes you.

Kathryn:  Leaving for Cape Cod July 22nd! Already planned my trip and this year it means NO DRIVING!  Gonna take the fast ferry to P'town, ride my bike and avoid the summer traffic on the Cape.

Kathryn,

              I went to Massachusetts several years ago during the fall and fell in love with the Cape. I had always wanted to go. I had heard about the awful jams in the summer so planned a late September vacation and it was wonderful. Glad to hear people are spending money!

Gwynn:  Cape Cod - welcome to Massachusetts.  The Cape has such beautiful bike trails.  I love your idea of commuting by bicycle.  Have a great trip!

Yolanda:  You are right - fall is a fantastic time to visit Cape Cod.  I hope you have the opportunity to return soon.

Conrad:  That is the truth!  The traffic coming up from NYC can get brutal.

Kathryn, traffic in the summer cannot be fun!    They still have toll booths?    We have a toll road out East of Denver, and they have transponders that we put on our windshield, and they have eliminated all the booths, making travel much faster!
