Did you make a wish with your family while watching the round full moon yesterday on Chuseok?
Today (2nd) is the middle day during the five-day Chuseok holiday.
Morning Wide starts on Friday, October 2.
Even if it is a little smaller than in the previous year, the highway is quite crowded this holiday season with families returning to their hometowns or outing.
It's early in the morning, so it's still smooth today, but it seems that the congestion of returning home will begin in earnest from around noon.
First, reporter Min Kyung-ho covered the highway situation.
congestion on the Chuseok Expressway, which showed a lull overnight, is reopening after 7 o'clock this morning.
At the beginning of the Gyeongbu Expressway, near the Seocho IC, the number of vehicles has increased slightly.
The vehicle speed is also slowing down in the vicinity of Seohae Bridge and Songak IC on the West Coast Expressway.
As of 7 a.m., it took 4 and a half hours between Seoul and Busan, 3 hours and 20 minutes between Seoul and Gwangju, 3 hours from Seoul to Gangneung, and 2 hours and 40 minutes from Gangneung to Seoul.
However, it is expected that the congestion on the way back home will become severe after 10 am.
After the major highways started to get crowded from 10 am to 11 am, the traffic congestion in the direction of Seoul will be the most severe at 3 pm on the Yeongdong Expressway, 4 pm on the Gyeongbu Expressway and the Seohaean Expressway, and 5 pm on the Jungbu Expressway and the Seoul Yangyang Expressway. The road works looked out.
The Highway Corporation explained that the congestion on the Gwigyeong-gil would be resolved tomorrow at 3 or 4 a.m., but 490,000 vehicles moved from the provinces to the metropolitan area only, which would be worse than the usual weekend.
Expressway tolls, which were waived for each holiday, are normally collected throughout the Chuseok holiday, including this return road.
In addition, in all rest area restaurants managed by the Road Corporation, food is not allowed, only packaging is allowed.
