The official mad dash for travel is expected to hit its fever pitch Saturday.

The security line at RDU was quite long in the morning, but airport employees said it was about normal for this time of year.

Transportation Security Administration agents enacted measures to speed the security line up, and by 7 a.m., the line was practically gone.
