Obama Is in Miami Today (and Might Mess Up Your Drive Home)
Yes, a presidential visit brings presidential traffic.
Last August, I happened to be on my way to the gym and was about to cross Collins Avenue when a bunch of police motorcycles blared by. President Obama was making his way from a quick late lunch at Jerry's Deli to the Fontainebleau for a fundraiser.
Though seeing the presidential motorcade traveling on an iconic road like Collins Avenue was pretty epic, I was sure glad I wasn't one of the many drivers stuck behind it.
Obama is scheduled to deliver his address at 7 p.m. and will arrive at Miami International Airport at 5:35 p.m. He's scheduled to depart from the airport at 9:05 p.m.
Traffic around the airport is expected to be delayed around both the arrival and departure. Traffic in downtown Miami is expected to be slowed as the president makes his way to the Knight Center during the height of rush hour.
