AAA is already sending out the warning to expect roads to be busy.
With gas prices down in the past few months, they expect more people to travel this holiday than a year ago.
To help keep traffic moving, the NCDOT shut down most work zones in the state Tuesday. They'll stay closed until Monday. You can help ease congestion too by avoiding the roads at peak travel times Wednesday and Sunday afternoons.
"Know before you go. Know what the congestion is. Plan your route. Know where you're going," said Terry Gibson with NCDOT.
Some more helpful advice from DOT is drive the speed limit. Patrols will be increased and getting pulled over won't get you home any faster.
