Top 10 worst Thanksgiving drives

More than 43 million people are packing up their cars and hitting the road over the next few days. Unfortunately, some of those trips to grandma’s house will include some serious traffic backups. Texas A&M Transportation Institute and INRIX recently teamed up to highlight some of the worst Thanksgiving drives in the country. Guess what? D.C. made the list.


Dallas-Fort Worth Loop 820/I-820 WB

Ongoing construction on this stretch of road affects speed and congestion on a daily basis. Count on doubling your usual travel time over Thanksgiving week.
