(Harrisburg) -- The Pennsylvania Turnpike is expecting nearly 3.5 million vehicles to travel the toll road throughout the Thanksgiving holiday.

Tuesday saw the heaviest volume and it will pick up again on Sunday as motorists head home.

All construction has been suspended except in the case of emergencies.

State troopers will be watching for speeders and motorists who are texting while driving.

The turnpike suggests motorists use its TripTalk app to stream audio traffic advisories to their smartphones
