MassDOT warns travelers busy Mother's Day weekend ahead

Posted: Updated:
SPRINGFIELD, MA (WSHM) -

Ahead of Mother's Day weekend, Massachusetts Department of Transportation officials are reminding travelers to expect heavy traffic on the MassPike on Friday.

Last year, the Friday before Mother's Day was ranked the second busiest travel day.

Toll plazas recorded nearly 700,000 transactions last year, second only to the Friday before Columbus Day.

MassDOT says they will have extra staff on hand this weekend, and they are encouraging people to sign up for the EZ pass if they haven't already done so.
