Traffic delays to and from the Orlando airport happen for many reasons. We’re sad to report this morning travelers can expect major delays due to tragic accident.
Reasons for Delays
Recently, it seems airlines have more and more flight delays. At times, it seems they are scrambling to keep up with flight demands. Then, there are weather delays due to storms. Once, I (Susan) got delayed for 6 hours due to the Orlando International Airport flooding!
Another reason for traveling delays is the busy traffic all around Disney World. Although delays are going to happen, they can be frustrating when you’re either excited to get to the theme parks, or anxious about catching your flight home. According to Orlando Police Twitter account, major traffic delays are expected this morning so plan accordingly.
Why the Delay?
Per Orlando Police, officers are investigating a double fatal crash on Jeff Fuqua Boulevard and Semoran Boulevard. This is a route used to get to and from the Orlando International Airport. Due to this, travelers can expect heavy traffic delays.
