(WPRI) — Officials in Massachusetts are advising drivers that traffic is expected to be heavy on the Mass Pike Friday, ahead of the upcoming Columbus Day weekend.

Last year, officials said the Friday before Columbus Day was the busiest day on the turnpike with more than 700,000 vehicles passing through the toll booths.

The Massachusetts Department of Transportation is also reminding drivers there are lane restrictions in place due to construction.
