SIOUX CITY (KTIV) - The American Automobile Association (AAA) estimates one hundred million Americans will travel by car this holiday season, but traffic was generally mild in Sioux City Saturday.

Regional department of transportation road condition maps showed mostly clear roads in greater Siouxland, though some non-interstate highways in Nebraska were listed as partially covered.

Severe winter weather plastered the Kansas City area, and some roads near Omaha were also listed as partially covered. A KTIV News 4 reporter visited two rest-areas on I-29 near Sergeant Bluff where only light traffic was reported.

Entering Sioux City, a four lane portion of I-29 was empty of traffic around 3 p.m. Saturday.

Still, AAA says Jan. 2 could be the largest travel day of the year, though conditions in Siouxland are projected to be clear.
