Officials say today was the busiest travel day of the year nationwide, but they also warn that Wednesday will probably bring NYC to a grinding gridlock status, which is bound to go down in the traffic jam record-books.

Get ready, set and be prepared to not go anywhere this coming Wednesday as we see holiday gridlock like we've never seen before thanks to the triple play arrival of Justin Bieber, Barack Obama in Manhattan and The Annual Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree Lighting Spectacular on live TV.

To add to this traffic insanity, the George Washington Bridge will have two upper-level eastbound lanes (to N.Y.), two upper-level westbound lanes (to N.J.) and one lower-level westbound lane closed 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. nightly from Monday through Friday morning. Truckers will face the greatest difficulty, since they're only allowed on the upper level. Drivers, should stick to the lower level. The Lincoln Tunnel will be a distress way under the Hudson River.
