The end of the holidays for some and the beginning for others. This fifth weekend of the holidays will be marked by the traditional “chassé-croisé” between Julyists and Augustians, with heavy traffic from Thursday July 28 in the Rhône Valley. Traffic, particularly dense during the days of Friday and Saturday, will remain strong until Monday August 1st on the main axes of the network.
A Saturday classified as black
According to Bison Futé, with regard to departures, the first major difficulties are thus expected from this Friday, July 29, classified in red. However, it is the day of Saturday July 30, classified black for its part, which is likely to be the busiest in traffic in the whole metropolis.
For holidaymakers returning for the weekend -end also promises to be busy but only in a large southeast quarter. The traffic lanes of the rest of the territory will be classified orange.
During this “crossover”, it is recommended to travel outside the hottest periods, to carry water in sufficient quantity and to multiply the breaks throughout the course.
