It should be a busy year for Independence Day holiday travel in the Rocky Mountain States. That’s according to AAA Auto Club who predicts approximately 3.1 million residents of the eight-state Mountain Region will travel 50 miles or more during the July Fourth holiday. That’s a 4.8 percent increase over 2011. The Mountain Region includes eight states: New Mexico, Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Utah and Wyoming. AAA says the holiday week runs from today through Sunday, July 8th because the holiday falls on a Wednesday, and many people intend to take off work before and after July 4th. Of those 3.1 million travelers, 2.4 million intend to get to their destinations by driving. Meanwhile, the Wyoming Department of Transportation says construction on Togwotee Pass will be suspended at 4:00 pm today and not resume until Monday morning.
