Hundreds of thousands of Wisconsinites will be on-the-go this Labor Day Weekend.

If you’re heading to southern Wisconsin, state officials say traffic could especially be tight. Thousands of motorcyclists will be in Milwaukee for Harley-Davidson’s 110th anniversary celebration which runs from tomorrow-through-Sunday. The Milwaukee Brewers have home games at Miller Park every day from Friday-through-Monday. In Madison, the normal 80-thousand-plus are expected for the University of Wisconsin football opener against Massachusetts on Saturday. The D-O-T urges drivers to be extremely careful. Peak travel times throughout the state will be from noon-to-8 p-m both Friday and Monday. According to the Triple-“A,” 713-thousand Wisconsin residents will travel at least 50-miles one way to enjoy summer’s final holiday. That’s a three-point-four percent increase from last year – and it’s the highest number since the start of the Great Recession.
