UTICA – Several roads in the city of Utica will be closed Monday afternoon and evening due to President Donald Trump’s visit to Utica.

Utica police say from 2-6:30 p.m. Monday, Oriskany Street will be closed from Champlin Avenue to Broad Street, and Lafayette Street will be closed from Genesee Street to Broadway Street.

According to President Trump’s public schedule that was released for Monday, Trump is scheduled to arrive at Griffiss International Airport at 4:05 p.m., and he’ll arrive at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Utica at 4:30 p.m. for Congresswoman Claudia Tenney’s fundraiser event. He’s scheduled to be there until 6:05 p.m.

Along Lafayette Street this is no parking, and two blocks west of the hotel is closed off as well, along with Columbia Street. Security could be seen checking the tires of cars on Monday morning.

State Department of Transportation crews were seen setting up trucks in the turn-around drives along State Route 49. There is no confirmation on the route the president will take to get to the city of Utica from Griffiss International Airport.
