President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania will be visiting Atlanta today (April 24th) for the Rx Drug Abuse and Heroin Summit. He will be speaking at the event drug abuse just one year after he launched his efforts to fight the opioid epidemic in this country. The summit will take place at the Hyatt Regency Atlanta.
Trump is scheduled to arrive at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport around 12:30pm and make his way via motorcade to the hotel in downtown Atlanta. Undoubtedly, the traffic will be bad around this time.
Once their speech concludes, Trump and Melania will make their way back to the airport around 2:15pm. The President will then fly back to Washington.
Anyone traveling through town early afternoon should expect delays, especially on the Downtown Connector, as the concurrent section of 75/85 is known. If you are traveling to or from the airport, we advise taking MARTA instead of a car.
