It's a super busy weekend on the Maine Turnpike. The MTA is expecting over 1 million transactions this Labor Day Weekend. According to the MTA:

"Saturday’s northbound traffic is expected to be slightly lower in volume than Friday’s, with the bulk of those vehicles threading the York Toll Plaza between 10:00 AM and 2:00 PM.

Monday’s traffic, with approximately 247,000 vehicles cruising the Turnpike, will be heaviest between 12:00 noon and 7:00 PM.  On a typical Labor Day, more than 3,760 vehicles travel through the York Toll Plaza every hour from 9:00 in the morning until 6:00 PM.

Starting out early in the morning or later in the evening are the best strategies for motorists hoping to avoid the heaviest traffic over the Labor Day weekend."
