Hartford (AP) — New England's highways and airports are expected to be busier than usual as a projected 2 million people in the region travel 50 miles or more to see family and friends for Thanksgiving.
The AAA motor club estimates that 1.7 million New Englanders will be traveling by automobile and more than 200,000 will be flying to their destinations. That's about 13 percent of the region's population.
No airline delays or other transportation problems were reported Wednesday morning in the six states. Airport officials say good weather is helping to keep flights on time.
AAA says Wednesday is expected to be the busiest travel day of the holiday, followed by Sunday as people head home to get ready for work or school.
