President Trump Making Visit Just Down The Road From Binghamton
We are under 80 days away from Election Day and it will be here before you know it. November 3rd will be here before you know it and many believe that this is the most important election in our lifetime. President Trump will be on the campaign trail and today, August 20th, he'll be in Old Forge, Pennsylvania. That's only about an hour drive to the south of Binghamton.
He's expected to make a stop at the Mariotti Building Products on Louis Industrial Drive and he will be speaking at 3 p.m. Because of the Presidential visit, traffic will be affected in the area today.
The Pennsylvania State Police have put up tape and road blockers around the houses by Mariotti, in case protesters show up today. The President is flying in on Air Force One to Wilkes-Barre Scranton International and is expected to land around 2:30 p.m.
There will be rolling roadblocks and closures on Interstate 81 north and south in the areas of the Scranton Wilkes-Barre International Airport and the Moosic Exits. Expect road closures in Moosic and Old Forge Borough near the Mariotti building this afternoon between 1:30 p.m. and 5:30 p.m.
If you plan to be in the area but aren't attending the campaign stop, you'll want to find alternate routes, especially during those times. You can expect to see heavy traffic congestion and extended delays this afternoon.
