Holiday traffic delays expected on Pike

Mass. toll plazas will have extra staff

Leaf-peepers and other travelers returning home after the holiday weekend should expect delays following the massive, 45-mile traffic jam on the Massachusetts Turnpike Friday night.

State officials said they will have enough staff at highway toll plazas to accommodate the heavy return traffic, but cautioned that the sheer volume of people heading home on this popular holiday inevitably will lead to delays. They expect the turnpike and Interstates 93 and 95 in particular to be slow going.
