I will be spending Labor Day in Newport and need to be at Boston's Logan Airport at 5 PM for a 7 PM flight home. What time do I need to leave Newport in order to make my flight? Will there be heavy traffic on Labor Day?
Emily's advice is conservative because there is always heavy traffic getting into Boston, a major holdup can make it much worse. Also just getting out of Newport can take a while depending where your car is.
Usually during the week the hov lane takes away a lane inbound on the expressway, which causes havoc in that direction. On labor day there will be no hov lane so two o'clock looks good to leave Newport.
