IDAHO FALLS – If you’re planning on heading out Friday night for Memorial day weekend, make sure you allow yourself plenty of time to get to your destination.

Major congestion and delays have been reported along Interstate 15 and U.S. Highway 20.

One driver tells us it’s taken over an hour to get from Rigby to Rexburg.

The high volume of traffic combined with several construction projects are contributing to the delays.
