French Alps in June?

I'm currently looking at a trip in the French Alps next year,and will be hiring a vehicle from either Lyon, Grenoble, Valence or Nice. There will be quite a bit of driving taking in the scenary and sites, and will definitely be driving in the region between Grenoble and Briancon. Can anyone advise what to expect with traffic congestion around this time of year? Thus far my research on weather, school holiday periods(avoiding) at this time indicates June to be a quieter time to travel with decent weather expected. I am not interested snow fields etc, although a trip to chamonix may be incorporated to ride the aguille du midi.
thanks in advance
