(Atlanta-AP) -- The summer travel season kicks off this weekend. Triple A auto club says it expects more than 29 million people on the nation's roads. during the three-day Memorial Day holiday. The group expects 35 million overall travelers -- including those traveling by train and airplane -- about the same number as last year.

 In Georgia, the State Patrol predicts 21 people will die in 2,500 accidents during the 78-hour holiday that ends at midnight Monday. The State Patrol predicts 682 people will be injured. The traffic count begins at 6:00PM today.

Travelers will get a break since the state Department of Transportation plans to suspend nearly all construction-related lane closes through Monday. The only exception is on Roswell Road near I-285, where workers are replacing a retaining wall that collapsed this week during heavy rain.

It's also the last day of school for students in many systems in Georgia.
