Is travel to Agra safe on day before Holi (March 26,2013)?

We plan to drive to Agra from Delhi on March 26, 2013 (Yamuna Expressway). Our cab driver is not sure if this is a good idea as he thinks Holi is celebrated very aggressively in UP, especially near Mathura. Has anyone done this before? What are your suggestions?

Thanks you!

The Taj Mahal is only closed on Fridays...if you don't have any other option then proceed early by Express way.
