COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KRDO) -- With the arrival of President Donald Trump for a campaign rally Thursday in Colorado Springs, plans are already in place to ensure a smooth ride from Air Force One to the Broadmoor World Arena.
But that means streets across the city will likely be shut down for hours while the president is in town.
The Colorado Springs Police Department and El Paso County Sheriff's Office will be aiding the president's motorcade.
Officials says Air Force One is scheduled to arrive around 4 p.m. but the road closures will begin earlier.
Trump's most recent visit brought the closures of roads like Fountain Blvd, Powers Blvd and Interstate 25. These roads are likely to be closed off to citizen drivers Thursday as well.
The Harrison School District Two was advised by law enforcement that its nearby roads would be closed off as early as 1 p.m. until 9 p.m. Thursday. In response, D-2 sent out alerts to parents that children will be released early and will be on buses at noon or can be picked up.
Officials are advising people to give themselves extra time to arrive to their destination and plan for possible delays.
President Trump is scheduled to speak at 5 p.m. at the World Arena. KRDO will have full coverage for the president's arrival and his speech during the local rally.
