STEVENSVILLE, Md. (AP) - AAA Mid-Atlantic predicts that more than 900,000 area residents will travel at least 50 miles during the Memorial Day weekend.

AAA officials, along with representatives of local and state traffic agencies, said at a news conference Tuesday that almost 90 percent of those planning to travel during the holiday weekend will do so by car.

The expected number of travelers would be the highest since 2005. Holiday air travel is expected to increase by 2.6 percent at the region’s three largest airports.
