Orlando, Fla. - Vice President Mike Pence is visiting the Orlando area Thursday afternoon and the Orlando International Airport is advising anyone using the airport for flights in/out to plan extra time to allow for rolling roadblocks.
Mr. Pence is in Orlando to discuss relief efforts for Puerto Rico, which took a direct hit from Hurricane Maria.
From the airport:
It is suggested that passengers and those arriving to pick-up passengers arrive early and allow for more time during the crucial rush hour time period this afternoon.
While every attempt will be made to minimize traffic disruptions, drivers are still cautioned to pack-your-patience when coming to Orlando International this afternoon.
The VP will attend two meetings during his visit to Central Florida - one of which at at OIA.
But his second meeting is in Kissimmee, which requires his motorcade to drive through Orlando-area roads and highways. Historically, presidential (and vice presidential) motorcades don’t share roads with other drivers, thus the rolling roadblocks.
While the White House does not reveal exact travel times and routes for security purposes, you get a fair idea of what roads COULD be involved in his travel.
At 7:00 PM, Mr. Pence will deliver remarks at Iglesia de Dios in Kissimmee (Church of God).
