Traveling from NYC to Cleveland OH Thanksgiving Weekend

I know there is a crazy amount of traffic that weekend. I am wondering if there will be a lot of traffic NYC to Cleveland. I figure its not a huge destination and the highways should not be that busy Wednesday eveningand Sunday evening.

Thank you

There really isn't any traffic here in Cleveland to speak of that can compare to that of a big city or getting in and out of one for a holiday weekend. Once you clear the greater NYC area, I'm sure it will be fine. Lingering construction will be your biggest delay - some construction is so complex on the turnpike that the speed limit goes down to THIRTY, and they ARE ticketing, so be careful.

Hope you have a safe journey.

My son makes the drive from NYC to NE Ohio every Thanksgiving. If you come across I 80, you should have no problem once you clear about 30 miles of NJ. The drive through PA is virtually all rural area. Be prepared though it takes him often 1-2 hrs. to get from his place through the Holland Tunnel. I assume the Lincoln Tunnel would be the same.
