Mass. Holiday Travel Off To Relatively Quiet Start

It was a relatively quiet start to the Christmas travel season in Massachusetts.

State police Sgt. Michael Popovics said the worst traffic problem Thursday followed a car fire during the evening rush hour on Interstate 95 in Needham. He said traffic volume was routine on other state roads.

Logan International Airport in Boston reported a busy, though not terribly unusual day. The flight schedule Thursday night showed most flights running on time or with minor delays.

Airport spokesman Phil Orlandella said Logan typically gets about 80,000 travelers a day, but expected about 5,000 more on Thursday and even more on Christmas Eve.
