First State highways saw another increase in traffic over the busy Thanksgiving holiday weekend this year

DelDOT says nearly million cars passed through the state’s toll plazas along I-95 and Route 1 between Wednesday and Sunday. 

That was up 32,500 or 3 percent from last year and almost 26 percent than two years when nearly 945,000 cars were counted during the same five-day period.

The biggest increase came at the Route 1 toll plaza at Biddle’s Corner which saw around 24 thousand more vehicles pass through this year than in 2015.

The I-95 toll plaza in Newark saw traffic increase by about 13,000 cars this Thanksgiving.
