BANGOR - Labor day weekend has many families taking trips around the country and more importantly taking time off of work, but for some that simply isn't an option.

Labor day traffic

 Heavy traffic is reported on Maine's roads and highways this Labor day. It was backed up greatly for much of the day as drivers leave the MDI area. There was also a bad accident on the interstate in Hampden this afternoon when a driver suffered a medical emergency. His vehicle struck another in the southbound lanes and then traveled across the median where it collided with a northbound vehicle. Some injuries are reported. According to the Maine turnpike authority, drivers can expect heavy traffic volume as they head south on the interstate. Stop and go traffic is reported from the Kennebunk area to the New Hampshire border.

Scallop season

Public hearings will be held this week to help determine changes to the states scallop season.

The Department of Marine Resources is considering rules that would create three scallop zones along the coast.

It would set a 70 day fishing season for much of the coast, but just a 44 day season for the coast along Washington county.

The department also wants to set catch limits to help overharvested areas to recover.

The first public hearing will be held tomorrow in Wiscasset at 6:00 pm.

The other hearings will be held Wednesday at six at the University of Maine at Machias.

The final hearing will be held Thursday at six at Ellsworth city hall.
