Those hitting the road this holiday weekend didn't seem to run into many issues in their travels.
Throughout the day Friday, traffic flowed freely on I-90 near the Belvidere Oasis in both directions. Some drivers worried construction would slow down their travels but they say the roads turned out to not be as bad as they thought.
"They've actually been great. We did a pit stop in the Wisconsin Dells, but yeah they've been pretty good other than the construction," said David Gold from Minneapolis.
"I thought the roads had been pretty good and the trip has gone really well so far," said Emily Gold.
Christmas and Thanksgiving are typically the busiest holiday traveling days.
