FHWA Urges Drivers to Prepare Total Solar Eclipse Travel

For the first time in 99 years, a total solar eclipse will occur across the entire continental United States on August 21 – and it could affect millions of drivers. 

Fourteen states will be in the path of eclipse’s totality -- from Oregon to South Carolina. The totality cuts across the country, meaning it will be seen by a large part of the population.  It is anticipated that approximately 200 million people will be within a day’s drive of the total solar eclipse. Even those who can’t see the total eclipse will be able to see a partial one. Lasting only two minutes or so, the eclipse will darken the country during the middle of the day when millions are on American roads, potentially causing one of the largest driver distractions in years.
