Kansas roadways soon will be packed with travelers
going to their Thanksgiving destinations.

Travelers can expect clear but cold weather throughout most of
the state during the holiday weekend. They also can expect to be
paying more for gasoline than they were a year ago.

Officials say the heavy travel days will be tomorrow and again
on Sunday. Kansas Turnpike officials expect holiday travel to be
about four percent higher than it was for the same period last
year.

State troopers will be out patrolling the roadways, hoping to
keep down the number of holiday related accidents.

Last year, there were 944 accidents and four fatalities during
the 102-hour holiday period.
