Expect company and snow for road travel

SACRAMENTO, CA - This weekend through the next after Thanksgiving, expect plenty of company and weather to play a role in your travels.

When snow chains are required, speeds on Interstate 80 must be 30 mph or less and on Highway 50, 25 mph per Caltrans.

The latest chain requirements on I-80, 0 as well as highways 4, 20, 49, 70, 88, 89, 108, 120 can be found on the Caltrans Road Report link.

In terms of the traffic volume expected, for the fourth consecutive year, the latest travel survey from AAA finds Thanksgiving travel continues to predict a slow but steady climb. AAA Northern California's latest travel forecast "predicts more than 5.4 million Californians plan to travel 50 miles or more this extended, four-day Thanksgiving holiday weekend. This represents an modest increase of 0.6 percent when compared to last year's figures."   

Stay safe!
