LANSING, MI (AP)-- AAA says nearly 1.2 million people from Michigan are expected to travel 50 miles or more from home during the Memorial Day holiday weekend.
The auto club says Thursday that's a nearly 2 percent increase from the just over 1.1 million who traveled last year.
AAA says it's the highest Michigan travel volume for the holiday period in nine years. More than a million travelers from Michigan will be driving to their destinations while nearly 60,000 will travel by air. The remaining travelers will go by train, bus or boat.
