DEARBORN – Independence Day will be the second busiest since 2000, as travel volumes continue to trend upwards with no sign of slowing down. AAA predicts that close to 1.7 million Michiganders will travel 50 miles or more during the holiday weekend (June 30 – July 4). That’s 10% more than last year’s holiday and slightly more than what was seen in 2019. Nationwide, travel volumes follow similar trends. AAA forecasts 47.9 million people will travel 50 miles or more from home over the holiday weekend. This is an increase of 3.7% over 2021, bringing travel volumes just shy of those seen in 2019.
