NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – More people in our area are expected to take to the roads for Labor Day Weekend.

AAA says an analysis of traffic at New York City bridges and tunnels shows overall volume so far this year is 11% below pre-pandemic levels from 2019, but it’s ticking up.

During the last five weeks, traffic levels are just 5% below 2019.

AAA says if that trend continues, there could be more than three million trips on MTA bridges and tunnels during the holiday weekend.
