Many drivers were sitting in bumper-to-bumper traffic along I-15 as the long holiday weekend wrapped up Sunday.

According to Trip Advisor, 22% of all travelers will head home Sunday.

Experts say the majority of travelers will head home during the week, after Monday, to avoid the rush on Sunday.

AAA says the 2017 Thanksgiving Holiday has been a record breaker. They estimate about 55 million Americans wil travel during the span of the holiday, and that’s highest number since 2005. 

NDOT has been urging drivers by illuminated signs to be aware of slow traffic on I-15 heading out of Las Vegas.
