CINCINNATI - 9 News has confirmed new details about President Barack Obama's planned visit to the Tri-State this week.
The president announced a visit to Cincinnati last week to take a look at the Brent Spence Bridge. He has mentioned the bridge multiple times in speeches about the American Jobs Act.
Obama will hold an event at Hilltop Ready Mixed Concrete at 511 W. Water Street, downtown on Thursday.
The event is free and open to the public. Only one ticket will be issued per person. The event begins at 2:30 p.m. Thursday.
Tickets will be available starting at 3 p.m. on Wednesday Sept. 21 at Paul Brown Stadium Plaza at Gate D .
Parking for ticket pick up will be at the Stadium Plaza and in the PBS East parking garage located on the eastern side of Paul Brown from 2 - 6 p.m. on Wenesday.
The site will open for guests around noon on Thursday. The White House Advance Team is handling tickets.
"How many is just unclear. It's not suitable for a large crowd. But some should be released to the general public. How and when they will be distributed, I don't know," said Faux. "It's my understanding, this is the only thing on the president's agenda -- then he'll leave."
Party officials said that Hilltop Ready Mix Concrete is the only place to get a clear look at the bridge and put the president speaking at the podium with the bridge in the background.
"Hilltop Concrete is a business that would benefit from this type of infrastructure spending," said Faux.
