President Barack Obama — and his motorcade — will be in Miami on Wednesday afternoon, which can mean only one thing for drivers: traffic jams.
Major roads typically shut down to make way for the president, who will speak about immigration at Florida International University. The event will be nationally televised on Telemundo and MSNBC beginning at 7 p.m., but it will be taped several hours earlier.
Air Force One is scheduled to land at Miami International Airport at 2:45 p.m and depart at 5:05 p.m., at the start of the evening rush.
No specific road closures have been announced, but it’s safe to say drivers can expect slowdowns near MIA and FIU’s main campus in West Miami-Dade County while Obama in town. Flights in and out of the airport may also be delayed.
