Memorial Day holiday travel: Check road conditions, wait times at airports

Millions of people are expected to hit the road and skies.

HOUSTON — Are you preparing to travel for the the Memorial Day holiday weekend?

Millions of Texans are expected to hit the road and the skies

Houston airports say they expect more than one million traveler over the three-day weekend.  They suggest you arrive to the airport two hour before your flight for domestic travel, even earlier for international. 

If you're heading to the airport, prepare for long lines at the airports. Parking lots fill up fast, so make sure to make a reservation at least six hours before your flight.

Another big reason you'll want to arrive early -- there's ongoing construction at Bush IAH to build a new international terminal.

If you're driving, AAA says the best time to leave on Friday is before noon. The worst time is between 3 p.m. and 6 p.m.  For coming back on Monday, you should leave by 10 a.m. Monday morning or before 2 p.m or after 6 p.m. Tuesday.
